Isle Laying Off Casino Workers In Biloxi, Mississippi

USA Players Accepted at Rome Casino!

More layoffs are coming within the casino gaming industry in the US, but this time they do not appear to be the result of declining revenue. The Isle Casino Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi has sent walking papers to three dozen employees late last week.

The layoffs are a result of the Isle turning to a private company to take over maintenance duties at the casino. The company claims that they have encouraged workers to seek employment in other areas of the casino, or even with the new maintenance company.

The Isle is turning to Southeast Cleaning to handle all of their maintenance in the future. The Isle is one of many casinos throughout the US that have been looking for ways to cut costs and be more efficient in their spending. It is likely the private company will not cost as much on a monthly basis as the salary's of the three dozen workers.

Mississippi casinos are in a similar situation as New Jersey and Nevada when it comes to gaming revenue. The three states were all pioneers in the casino industry in the US, but recent law changes in many states has left each of the three gaming staples struggling to keep up with past revenue figures.

The three states started experiencing trouble during the economic recession of 2008, and that trouble continued through 2009 and 2010. Towards the end of last year, revenue started to stabilize at casinos across the US. Mississippi casinos also have to deal with other Gulf Coast areas such as Louisiana.

Las Vegas turned to new properties in 2010 to help bring back customers, but neither CityCenter nor the Cosmopolitan did much to excite gamblers into taking trips to Sin City. Nevada and New Jersey casinos laid off thousands of workers in the past couple of years in an effort to stay fiscally responsible. Several of the casinos have started to hire back some of those employees that lost their jobs in the past two years.
