Maluchnik stands up for Carver County workers

There’s a dispute brewing over the use of out-of-state temporary workers at the Mills Fleet Farm site in Carver.  Mills received a total of $3 million in subsidies and loan guarantees from the City of Carver and Carver County for the project.  The Tax Increment Financing agreement between Mills and the City of Carver only calls for Mills to be required to hire 1 full-time equivalent, even though there are an estimated 1,000 unemployed construction workers in Carver County.

Carver County Commissioner Randy Maluchnik has stepped up pressure on Mills over the last week, taking to the airwaves to point out the ample availability of local workers to do the work at the site.
