Michigan's "Brain Drain"

https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2019/03/michigan-still-fights-brain-drain-although-outlook-has-improved.html

I recently stumbled upon this article. Do you think young adults leaving Michigan to go pursue higher-paying jobs is a valid argument for the economy dropping between 2008-2012? Or was this simply because of the 2009 crash that left a plethora of economies in the tank? How do you think this topic impacts Michigan as a whole today? Do you agree with this article?
