Menards in Minot gets workers from Wisconsin
The Menards store in Minot is getting workers flown in from its company headquarters in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Minot, close to the oil patch and recovering from last year’s flood, is in the middle of a building boom with insufficient workers for its store. The store plans on hiring 50 workers in Eau Claire and fly them weekly to Minot. The Minot store offers a $13/hour starting wage, compared with the typical federal minimum wage in Wisconsin of $7.25/hour. Read the article in the Bismarck Tribune.
