CNN Video: Hollywood Helps Michigan Jobless

Hat tip to @Andy_Levin from DELEG for the tweet on this CNN piece that shows how the No Worker Left Behind program is involved in training unemployed Michigan workers for jobs in our rapidly growing film industry.

Excellent quote at the end: "The real mission, pure and simple, is leave a legacy of jobs".

That is, unless our esteemed legiscritters decide to cut it off at the knees. Which they just might do. Then, all these workers we are training can run off to Louisiana, where they are going to expand and make permanent their film credits to try and get this business back.

Be a shame, wouldn't it?
