Ohio Casino Jobs Starting To Be Filled, Residents See The Light

The state of Ohio was among the worst hit with job loss during the economic recession of 2008. As many industries crumbled under the financial disaster, a new industry was born in Ohio that could help lead the state out of economic trouble.

Voters finally approved casino resorts after years of failed attempts by pro-gambling groups. Penn National Gaming and Rock Gaming put together the four casino plan that Ohio residents finally bit on, and Ohioans are starting to see the rewards to that decision.

Toledo is one of the four cities that will be home to a new casino, and this past week, Penn National announced that they have started to accept applications for dealer positions at the casino. The company plans to have at least 100 dealers hired by the end of October, with an additional couple hundred casinos hired in the future. The jobs are expected to bring dealers a healthy hourly pay, along with tips.

Penn National owns the Toledo and Columbus casinos. Rock Gaming, which is owned by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, will operate the Cincinnati and Cleveland gaming facilities. The two companies are both excited to have their projects on the move after battling Governor John Kasich earlier this year. Kasich held out for a higher tax rate from the companies, which he eventually received.

As for the new jobs, residents have an upbeat outlook about the possibilities.

"I was glad my fellow Ohioans voted for the casinos. For me, I just wanted to have an outlet to gamble where I didn't have to go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas," said Brock Nelson. "But, I think the casinos will be good for the economy as well. I have at least five friends that have applied for dealer jobs, so I personally know how much the casinos are already helping."
