Duane Wixson, construction manager for the general contractor Clark Construction, said: "We are certainly going through a lot of effort to get local people involved. We've been given the directive from the tribe to have as many local and Native (American) and tribal people as possible involved."

Battle Creek Unlimited President and CEO Jim Hettinger said "The tribe has negotiated with (Southwest Michigan Building and Construction Trades Council), so they're going to get highly skilled workers. There are a lot of quality construction contractors around here that have been using their skills for years. Their experience will come into play in what I think will be a high-quality project."

When completed, the casino is expected to hire 1,224 employees for its daily operations.
