Ohio Casino Construction Workers Heading Back To Work This Week

The last thing the state of Ohio needed was for another issue to disrupt the unemployment rate. With Rock Gaming halting construction of their two Ohio casinos, it appeared that was the route the state was heading.

This past week, Rock Gaming, and negotiators from the Governor's office, reached a financial agreement on the terms of the gaming revenue the casinos in Cincinnati and Cleveland will bring in. The governor believes the deal is beneficial to both the developer and the state.

"I believe the agreement we have with Rock will benefit the citizens of the state of Ohio," said Governor John Kasich. "I'm also pleased that Rock's going to be able to get about their business. We want them to be successful, and yes, I'm very satisfied with where we are."

More satisfied is the hundreds of construction workers that will head back to their job sites on Monday and Wednesday. Rock Gaming is building a $400 million casino in Cleveland, and is making a similar investment in Cincinnati. The resumption of the project comes at a critical time for Ohio.

"We could not afford a long, drawn out, negotiating period," said Ohio resident Grant Blake. "I have several friends that lost their paychecks when Rock Gaming stopped construction, and I'm glad those friends are now getting their jobs back. It was a scary couple of months for them."

Kasich now has the chore of ensuring that a similar deal gets done with Penn National Gaming. Penn National owns the rights to the casinos in Toledo and Columbus. While they, too, were unhappy with the waves Kasich was making in regards to the deal that voters approved, Penn National has not stopped construction on their gaming facilities.
