In addition, here is a brief recap of the 2014 MSFA Vikings Stadium Project:
320,697 hours obtained by people of color in 2014
- 43 percent worked by African Americans
- 28 percent worked by Latino/as
- 19 percent worked by Native Americans
- 9 percent worked by Asian Pacific Islanders
38 percent workforce of color reported by prime contractor Mortenson
An estimated $5.39 million to workers of color so far!
We knew when we started this project, that the goal of hiring a workforce of color at 32 percent was a daunting task. But thanks to the hard working collaboration of public agencies, unions, contractors, and advocates, we were able to surpass this goal. The results from 2014 are clear – when we dedicate and push ourselves to creating equity and prosperity for more people, we can do it!
