ALL new casinos in LV have layoffs within 6-9 months after opening, Wynn and Mandalay Bay included. It is non news. Not that optimistic for their prospects though, DT Grand and them both chose to open in an already saturated market. But the layoffs in and of themselves are irrelevant.

Surprised? YEAH!

Surprised that it hasn't happened sooner....

I am pretty sure EVERY casino over hires to open the doors. They figure X amount will quit, Y amount will get fired for sucking at thei job, and then they have the number that they actually need.

if X+Y doesn't get them to their number then they have to make cuts.

2% of their work force is 32 people. This is hardly newsworthy. They over hired. That happens in almost all new businesses.

Let's not lose sight of the fact that only 2% were let go.

3400 * 0.02 = 68

Big whoop.

Happens at every new Casino. Can't read anything into it. You have to have an abnormal amount of Staff for the first couple of months, not only to cover for the abnormal amount of business to see the new place, but also many of the Staff are new and don't make the grade during this time. If they do it again next year then that's newsworthy.

Unless you're 1 of the 68. Kinda sucks, they haven't worked long enough to apply for unemployment.
