Republican Gov.-elect Rick Snyder's transition office says more than 5,000 people have applied for jobs with his administration in the three weeks since the transition's website went online.
The Detroit Free Press reports Saturday that since Michigan's governor gets to directly hire only about 200 people, the job applications received so far represent more than 25 hopefuls for every opening.
Most of the job descriptions on the website are generic and identical for each department.
None lists a salary range.

    I hope there will be more jobs than that?Jobs are the main issue.Thousands without work.Just like thousands homes lost.Thousands in poverty.How many getting welfare help now?How many homeless now?This state was getting bad before Jenn.So how can 10 years be fixed so fast to save Mich?Or other states suffering.One country,so many different ideas and arguing between them all.It is a good reason for things getting worse.When two ends keep pulling against the middle,something has to give.Can the USA be fixed when it is so divided?

    Can I have a job to outsource more jobs to China? How about repealing legislation that helps out poor people?
