Blame Idaho Leaders For Poor Wages

Idaho is trapped in a self-perpetuating cycle of low wages, low-skilled jobs and low-skilled workers. It has an abundance of all three. What it lacks - in fact, what it is losing -- are enough professional, scientific, technical and corporate management jobs. And Idahoans who work in those fields would earn considerably more if they moved to another state. Apparently, that's just fine with Idaho's leadership. It has done little to give Idaho's growing labor force the capital investments it needs to succeed/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you know of individuals in professional, scientific, technical and corporate management jobs who have left Idaho seeking better incomes?
