One of the Pronexus arguments for keeping
Nexus in the Onamia area and used to support the building of the $14 million
dollar new facility was the supposed
number of jobs generated for local workers during construction.
"Think of all the jobs!" people said...
Well, so far, that's another pipedream that
hasn't come true.
The architectural firm
Smith, Nolting, and Asc. is from Baxter, MN (Crow Wing
Veit, the excavation company is from
Rogers, Minnesota (Hennepin County)
the builder is from Baxter, MN (Crow Wing County)
Aren't there any architects,
excavators, and builders in Mille Lacs County?
or perhaps Nexus doesn't think very highly
of folks in Mille Lacs County. After all, most of the employees are hired
and commute to the Mille Lacs Academy from other counties.
