Workers picket outside Atlantic City casino, seeking raises


Associated Press

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J,. (AP) — Hundreds of Atlantic City casino workers have picketed outside the Tropicana casino. They’re demanding a new contract with the city’s nine gambling halls that guarantees employees a share in the post-COVID recovery. The old contract expired early Wednesday. Union leaders and workers say they’ll demonstrate as often as necessary, and are feeling the pinch from rising gas and food prices. Atlantic City casinos and their online partners are collectively making more money than before the pandemic. But they say not all the casinos have surpassed pre-pandemic levels for in-person revenue. The casinos keep only about 30% of online and sports betting money.
