MN Job Watch


According to Minnesota Lawyer, Dorsey & Whitney laid off 38 support staff in Minneapolis (55 nationally), but still plan to welcome the class of 2009 first=year lawyers.

AP reports that Enbridge Energy announced it will start hiring 3,000 workers next month to build its Alberta Clipper line from Superior to the Alberta oil sands in Canada, and its Southern Lights pipeline from Chicago to northwestern Minnesota. ” Just one hitch: the company still doesn’t have federal and Wisconsin permits for the pipelines. I wonder whether the jobs announcement is intended to put any pressure on environmental agencies to approve the controversial projects.

I’m a news junkie, and I read news reports from dozens of sources every day. News Day is my blog, and in it, I summarize, link to, and comment on reports from news media around the world, with particular attention to Minnesota news.
