ONE will create economic opportunity for Richmond and its residents through the creation of new jobs, cultivating a diverse workforce representative of Richmond, and lifting up and benefiting the entire city.
NEW, LOCAL, WELL-PAYING JOBS
ONE will create 1,500 jobs with an average annual salary of $55,000 and a commitment to a $15 hourly minimum wage. And ONE will offer profit sharing to employees. Our employees will share in the ownership of this project.
During construction of the venue, ONE is estimated to generate 3,000 construction jobs, prioritizing local construction talent as much as possible.
Richmond Hiring Goal
ONE will look to hire from within the Richmond community as much as possible and will set a goal of having Richmond residents comprise at least 60% of its workforce.
Workforce Diversity Goal
ONE will have a workforce diversity goal of 50% for the construction and operation. That means that the people building and running ONE would be representative of the diversity that makes Richmond unique.
Supplier Diversity Goal
ONE will have a 40% Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Emerging Small Business (ESB) supplier goal for construction and operation. That means that, beyond ONE’s workforce, the people supplying ONE with all the goods and services needed to build and operate ONE would also be representative of the diversity that makes Richmond unique.
Union Participation Goal
ONE will have a 40% union participation goal, looking to prioritize union talent in the construction of the venue, and ONE will also have a commitment to pay prevailing wage on all construction.
