Roughly 250,000 working-age people live within a 20-minute commute to the City, and more than 1.5 million live within a 45-minute commute. This includes excellent concentrations of both skilled and unskilled workers; and an unparalleled selection of experienced managers, as well as management trainees from several area universities, colleges, and vocational training schools.
More than anything else, the character of Saline-area workers is an extension of the community's agricultural roots, whose heritage puts a premium on traditional values, hard work, self-reliance, independence, and an enduring pride in one's community, family and job.
Saline offers the highest quality in community amenities including top-notch hospitals, schools, and recreation facilities. It is part of the Ann Arbor metropolitan area which is consistently rated as one of the top ten areas for quality of life each year.
