In an interview with 1010 WINS, Bruce Ratner said that 2,000 people will eventually be hired as part-time and full-time workers at Barclays Center. He did not offer a breakdown for part-time or full-time or the average salary. At least 20 of the 2,000 will make a half million dollars a year: players, coaches and other basketball and business operations staff.
Ratner also once again welcomed the New York Islanders to the Brooklyn arena. "They could play here. It would be a lot to do the arranging for and so on, but yes it could be done," he said.
