The service sector is the main employer in metro Detroit, like pretty much everywhere these days. However, if we sort employers by the number of employees, the auto companies are still taking the most of the top 20 employers in this area.

The split is about 80%/20% b/w in the city proper, and almost the reverse 30%/70% b/w in metropolitan Detroit (which includes the suburbs).

I would also add that when you work in Detroit proper, the split is somewhere around 50/50 among coworkers.

the larger ones in the pictures above can be considered small mansions, so the price is around $1 million

Now that is just so inexpensive compared to Britain.

In Liverpool you would be looking in excess of £ 1.75 million ( almost $2million) ; in London or Surrey - £10 million at least.

As amazing as that may seem, that actually sounds about right... I wouldn't be surprised if prices in Southeast England were about 10x that of metro Detroit (prior to F/X conversion!). I know that prices per sq foot in Manhattan (which are lower than central London) are about 10x that of metro Miami. Very unscientific of course, but sounds about right.
