Eagan has lost thousands of high paying jobs in recent years. These are real jobs... $100k/yr jobs. We're talking more than $100,000,000 impact per year. That's real money. Amazingly, our leaders pushed the Vikings Stadium and extended taxing citizens in order to provide a few hundred $10/hr part time pretzel vendor jobs. Why didn't our leaders help provide entitlements to Delta, Lockheed, etc? I guess these companies didn't paint their faces purple and prance about the capitol.

I used to live in Eagan back in the late 70's. Housing was in a big downturn then and Eagan was nicknamed "the hole in the donut".

I bet those displaced 50 year old engineers are going to fit right in selling overprices clothes to their daughters. Believe it or not, there used to be jobs in this country that were not service/tourism based.

"a corporate headquarters for 40 to 50 employees and a call center for at least 300 workers" -- sound like the right ratio to propell Eagan to the top of the charts.
