"…The currently Ojibwa II employs 200 people. According to the tribe, the new complex should employ around 400 workers.

"The tribe has earmarked over $50 million for the casino project according to tribal officials, and several million dollars have already been spent. Crews have renovated the former terminal building and plan to use the facility for office space…"
