In this morning's paper I underlined these two paragraphs in the Trigaux column:

By the way, those new GE jobs in Clearwater won't pay anything close to $29 an hour. It's that wage difference — enhanced by Florida's weaker union presence, lower taxes and still cheaper cost of living — that woos more jobs out of places like upstate New York.

And it's that bigger migration trend of jobs-done-for-less that will help drive Florida's population past New York's early this year. In so doing, the Sunshine State officially becomes No. 3 in size behind Texas and California.
