Interesting stat from the Minneapolis Downtown Council 2015 annual meeting… the 15 largest employers in Downtown Minneapolis employ 50,583 people. That’s down 1.1% from a year ago.
It needs to be noted that Target is down 20% from last year:
- A large number are now working at the Brooklyn Park campus
- Layoffs and likely this number will drop again this year in part to the Target Canada layoffs
The list with +/- 2014:
- Target Corp. 10,000 employees | -20.5%
- Wells Fargo & Co., 7,000 | no change
