|We treat our workers like shit.|
Scores of workers lined up after a meeting in a party room on the third floor of Resorts World Casino in Queens on Wednesday afternoon to turn in the uniforms they had worn in the casino’s buffet restaurant and pick up their final paychecks.I was at this Casino and I have to admit that there was a large amount of Asian workers ( compare to the neighboring population) employed there and the food did suck. And, in the bar they served scotch out of a plastic cup.
On Monday, about 175 employees of the buffet restaurant in the slot-machine and electronic gambling casino in Ozone Park learned that the restaurant had been closed and that their jobs no longer existed. The casino had received plaudits when, in late October, a labor arbitrator issued a ruling that doubled the average pay of workers.
I wrote about this Christmas day. You will recall that Audrey Edmonson, Lynda Bell and her side-kick Eddie used tax dollars to take a trip to Singapore to visit the casino and meet with Executives. Here is more on Lynda Bell and Genting and their wacky casino high speed boat deal (that isn't working). They are unwilling to hire local workers at minimum wage. What a sign of how crappy a Corporation they are. I called it a boondoggle in the making and I was right.
Good jobs for Miami Dade County? I don't think so. Unions and County Commissioners beware! This company has a black hole when it comes to wages. Learn from New York City. Learn from the meager wages paid to the high speed boat workers. They don't even want to pay minimum wage, they just want to bring in foreign workers. That sure helps the Miami Dade County economy and workers.
