    Building Trades unions promote Mall of America expansion - By Steve Share, Labor Review via Workday Minnesota
    "At a time when job creation is at an all-time low… we need this project," said Makarios. He noted that in addition to creating 7,000 construction jobs, Phase II would create 7,000 permanent jobs. "It couldn't come at a better time," he said.

    Last year, before the Governor's veto, the Building Trades staged an outdoor rally at the State Capitol in support of Phase II and announced that the Mall of America had signed a Project Labor Agreement to use 100 percent union labor on the job — the largest PLA in the state's history.
