Wrong, it isn't, which is why everyone is leaving that shit-hole (except Chicago).

Nah IL is ****ed, myman. How many other places have you lived? I was born in Urbana-Champaign and, while I do miss the academic environment of a true college town, I don't miss anything else.

The ocean > Illinois.

Plus it seemed like during my lifetime Urbana got more and more ghetto. Sounds racist, but it's true. There were some ghetto-like places there when I was a teen, but it's just gotten worse. It's like they took a bunch of people from Chi and relocated them to low rent places there.

Trailer trash, too.

I'm not even being bogus, though. I'm just talking about the people that spill over. Like you see more shady looking people around by far.

Once the word got out about the short waiting list for Section 8 recipients downstate, Chicago folks started flocking down there in droves. It started in Danville then it spilled over into the Champaign-Urbana area. .

This. Chicago isnt shrinking. Little towns that rely on farming and manufacturing are dying and big cities are on the rise. Excluding chicago everything in illinois is farming pretty much.

Illinois still had a population growth compared to 2010. Shouldn't worry too much

Compared to alternatives, it's very expensive to both start-up and maintain most businesses in IL. Usually a local market can correct cost-gaps through different economic mechanisms(seller status, contractual obligations, and market-rate/cost of living adjusted pricing). In IL, the corrections can not keep up with the pace legislators manipulate the regulations and business contracts. Some people said it is similar to Detroit and other parts of the midwest, and that is true. It's not unionism that is bad, but over-powerful and corrupt unionization throughout the local and state establishment that make it hard to get anything done unless you are well connected or slip under the radar and either skirt the laws like a pro or do things unlawfully.
