MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Politicians said the new Vikings stadium would create jobs, and some proof of this pledge was evident Thursday.

A job fair was held at the Sabathani Community Center in north Minneapolis to connect the construction firms involved in the stadium with skilled workers.

The firms aim to recruit women, minorities and veterans to work on the project, due in part to a provision of the stadium legislation which sets aside a percentage of jobs for these groups.

The $975 million stadium is scheduled for completion by Aug. 2016.
