My Casino is paying all staff during the closure, including average daily tips based on the previous pay period, for all tipped employees.

Pretty sure at least all the southern Calif casinos are paying their people, with ONE exception, Viejas. Don't think the dealers are too happy about that.

That is awesome. I was impressed that some were paying just the hourly wages when they don't have to.

you're applauding the same management that took the following action 6 days ago.

"Business as usual at the largest casino in Az. Sold out outdoor concert tonight (2,854 people) for John Fogerty.



So? The concert was cancelled that night and both casinos closed a couple days later. That makes the fact that they are going way above and beyond by paying average tips, which is way more than half for dealers, cocktail servers and wait staff their average tips, less amazing?

I doubt many are including average tips. Less than 5% I bet.
I've only heard about one other casino doing it, Many are laying off. Live Casino & Hotel in Maryland.

My guess would be an additional expense of $1,000,000 to $1,250,000 a week to my Casino that they don't normally have, even when open.

That's way more than the right thing.

It always amazes me when big companies do the right thing. I was happy to see that some bars in Las Vegas are paying their employees their hourly wages.

Wynn and Stations have put out notice they will re-open May 1.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

That's bold. I'd also take the "no" on it actually happening. I know things are desperate for Stations, but they're going to waste money preparing to open when they can't...
