Yeah 75 over the River is a mess heading south. Supposed to be done later this year. Makes going to Toledo a pain. 75 in Toledo is a mess as well, but at least both sides are open.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Coilman ,10 gallons of milk for 11.70
so 1.17 per gallon I've never seen it that cheap.
Usually it's 3.69 where I live or on sale for 2.79



Its been $1.17 a gallon for months around here....just not at every store

and eggs have been crazy cheap too 36 for $1.32 thats what 4 cents each give or take for large ones
not sure if this will work
Warren Walmart Supercenter#4424

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Great-Value-Large-Grade-A-Eggs-36-ct/142616435

within say 15 minute drive I can hit 4 different Walmarts and the price difference on those eggs goes from $1,32 to I believe it was $5.40 for the same package... so it depends on which store is fighting the others for customers

Local 444 Unifor
April 6 at 7:59pm ·
Attention Caesars Casino Members.
The officers of Local 444 have reached out to Caesars management and at this time there is no intent from Caesars to return to the bargaining table. We have been working on putting together the issues raised at the ratification meetings and will soon be pushing the Managment of Caesars to listen to these demands and return to the bargaining table.
In solidarity,
Officers of Local 444.

So let me get this straight. In 2001 the minimum wage was $6.85/hr. Over the last 17 years it has gone up $7.15 and over the same amount of time Casino workers have seen an increase of $4.60/hr. With the offered $1.75/hr they will once again be a dollar or two over minimum wage...well until it goies up another dollar in January 2019 putting most back to minimum wage. How does that constitute a wage increase? Considering where their wages were even a decade ago, they have now decreased in wages while the price of bread has tripled. They are paying once a month for hydro what used to be every other month. Forget any thought of ever owning a home on those wages. Pretty sad for the biggest money maker in the city of Windsor. Their wages were posted by the Star, why not post the CEO's wages along with the Executive Managements? How much has their salaries increased since 2001? What sort of cars are they driving? Time to share the wealth....with the people who have really worked their backs off to make them wealthy. The ones who have brought the customers in and kept them there! That was them, not the upper management. With what was lost with the sold out show and the closure the first evening of the strike would have been enough to bring happiness and delight to all the 2300 unionized workers. Afterall, didn't the Casino once employ well over double that? How many of those workers let go and replaced with technology did the Casino not have to pay any wage gains to after their previous negotiated contracts? As for people who say 'Quit' ... 'find a job somewhere else'....well why should they? They accepted the promise of long term employment and potential future gain and many of them stuck it out for the long haul under that presumption. They sacrificed singificant wage increases since 2001 so the Casino could flourish. They have flourished and it's now time to recognize their workers.

This whole situation I believe is directly related to the rapid recent increase in the Minimum Wage. If you have been making $5 more than the MW, and now all of a sudden are just making $1 more, you feel like you are being underpaid. You want a raise, even though you are generating no more revenue for your employer than you were before the MW was raised. So what is the casino to do to find that extra money to pay you? Worse rules for the gamblers? Fewer comps? Higher buffet prices? Higher parking charges? These don't work since there is competition just a few miles away.

There will be those who say 'pay the managers less', or 'make less profits for the greedy owners', but if they do that, will the business still exist? Presumably management is paid on a market value.

The Windsor casino is closed
Shutdown procedures began around 11 p.m. Thursday April 5, 2018

Full story

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:
Caesars Windsor is TEMPORARILY CLOSED as a result of a labour disruption.

We are making the very difficult decision to postpone Colosseum shows, Total Rewards promotions, conventions, events and meetings for the remainder of April as well as cancelling all hotel reservations booked in the month of April 2018.

Colosseum Shows: April shows to be rescheduled include Buddy Guy (April 13), David Foster (April 15) and Terry Fator (April 21). Ticketholders can hold onto their tickets to be honoured on the new show dates, yet to be determined. Refunds for postponed shows will be handled through the method of purchase, however Box Office refunds will be processed once the labour disruption is resolved and Caesars Windsor reopens. All future Colosseum shows will remain scheduled on their original date until further notice.

Hotel Reservations: Hotel reservations booked between now and April 30 have been cancelled. Affected guests will be contacted via email or phone call as soon as possible and the reservation will be automatically cancelled. For more information, please call 1-800-991-8888 or email vipservices@caesarswindsor.com.

Future hotel reservations beyond May 1 will remain booked until further notice.

Events and Meetings: Caesars Windsor Hotel Sales Managers are proactively reaching out to event and meeting planners who have booked their event(s) at our property in April 2018 to assist in reviewing their options to postpone or relocate their event.

Total Rewards Property Promotions: Total Rewards April promotions have been postponed and will be rescheduled with future dates yet to be determined. Total Rewards members will be contacted via email, mail and the Play By TR app of new dates when available.

Once an agreement has been reached, we will be communicating our re-opening date on caesarswindsor.com, facebook.com/caesarswindsor and Twitter (@caesarswindsor)

We apologize for any inconvenience.

For a while here in Michigan last fall, a gallon of milk was down to 98 cents.
