Wisconsinites flee the state

Climate may explain the first 4 on that list, but it does not explain why Minnesota and Washington should be gaining thousands of Wisconsinites, which leads back to Lounsbury’s theory about higher quality of life and a stronger economy being reasons for certain states to attract talent from Wisconsin. And it’s also worth mentioning that both states have higher minimum wages than Wisconsin, and were ahead of us in instituting progressive policies such as strong public transit and marriage equality.
