HIRE Minnesota: Show Us the Money
Southwest Light Rail Transit is currently being debated between several entities on issues ranging from alignment to its ability to help city residents who need transit the most. Along with this debate there has been an increased focus on equity. HIRE Minnesota has had the opportunity to weigh in on employment equity principles in these discussions. We have advocated for significant investment in training and placing people of color in the workforce associated with the transit line – both in constructions jobs and beyond.
