The Wynn Regional Trade Union Job Fair was a huge success, drawing hundreds of residents interested in jobs relating to the construction of the new $1.7 billion Wynn resort/casino in Everett.
The well-organized and well-publicized job fair heightens the enthusiasm that Everett has for this project, a firm endorsement that began when our residents voted overwhelmingly (87 percent) for a resort/casino in our city.
The fact that thousands of jobs – carpenters, electricians, painters, landscapers – will become available soon is great news for area residents seeking full-time or part-time employment.
It was great to see Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria Jr. and State Sen. Sal DiDomenico at the job fair greeting residents and trade union representatives. Wynn Everett President Robert DeSalvio, who has become a highly visible member of our community and so supportive of local organizations and institutions – such as our legendary Everett High football program – was also present at this event.
People who have visited Las Vegas and walked through one of Steve Wynn’s spectacular hotels understand that the Wynn/Everett resort will be unprecedented in terms of appearance, architecture, and design. This is a project that will not only transform our city in to a destination point, but the entire region, providing a major boost to our economy.
Good jobs at good wages have been one of the most important factors when discussing the benefits of a $1.7 billion resort/casino complex built in Everett – and this job fair increased our optimism and advanced our anticipation of the day when Steve Wynn, one of the foremost developers in the world, cuts the ribbon to officially open Wynn Resort.
