HIRE Minnesota: Stadium Authority Commits to Hiring Goals
Earlier this month the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, the governing body for the new Vikings Stadium, announced that it will follow state guidelines by committing to hire 32 percent people of color and 6 percent women for the stadium’s construction.
