Penn National May Continue Downward Spiral With Casino Layoffs

Penn National Gaming Inc. raised eyebrows earlier this year when they decided they did not have the product to compete with a neighboring casino. They broke their agreement with the state of Kansas and the ride has been rough ever since.

Now, after a rough year, Penn National is saying that they may cut jobs at their Pennsylvania casino. The move could cost fifteen people their jobs.

The company's spokesman Eric Schippers is blaming the economy as the reason for the possible layoffs. The job losses would come at Penn National Race Course near Harrisburg and would further hurt the economy in the state of Pennsylvania.

"Penn National is following suit in the casino industry. As a whole the industry has slashed many jobs, but what they did in Kansas makes their layoffs look much worse than the others," said observer Jack Likel.

What the company did in Kansas was agree to a contract to run a state owned casino in the state. Then, after agreeing to the contract, the company reneged on their deal. They claimed it would be too difficult to compete with a neighboring casino.

In Pennsylvania, Penn National had originally set the number of firings at between twenty and thirty employees. Several of those who were going to be laid off have transferred to other jobs within the casino or at other Penn National locations.
