Ever Wonder Which states are the top destinations for those seeking jobs?

California has lost 3.4 million workers since 1990 to other states, an exodus that can be attributed to such factors as recession, high unemployment and a shrinking defense sector. These are the findings of "The Great California Exodus: A Closer Look," a Manhattan Institute report authored by Tom Gray and Robert Scardamalia. 
Less than a decade ago, both California and Texas had comparable economies, but in 2007 California's jobless rate began to climb, reaching 12.4 percent in July 2010. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate in Texas stabilized, making it a destination state for Californian job seekers. 
The report lists 10 states that have been top destinations between 1990 and 2010, and presents them here. These states are not limited just to those that have seen significant increases in migration from California, but also include those that have received major infusions to its workforce from places like the Deep South and the Northeast.
The full story is HERE.

The link window should open to the number 10 state. Next to the photo, there is an arrow to number 9 and so on. Also there is an explanation for each as you go through the list
