About Those Layoffs at MGM

Reader alby22 posted a comment the other day with the trailing tease...

A bit of gossip - word on the street is that MGM are about to lay off a heap of their imported staff.

I've run a little interference with our mole inside MGM confirms that there have been layoffs at MGM, but they were a part of a move by the Macau government to trim the number of non-skilled expatriates working at many different casinos in Macau. The layoffs happened at a number of joints around town, not just MGM Grand Macau. They reiterated that the layoffs are not related to the economy whatsoever.

If you can read this,my theory was wrong.

check it out! it works!

I tried commenting before without luck. Works now?

Great report, a few questions and comments.

You describe the craps table at the Plaza/Four Seasons as "mini-craps". When I hear that I think of the bathtub sized thing they try in Vegas every so often. When I was there in September their table was smaller than normal, but still looked like a craps table from afar. Has the Plaza changed its table to the bathtub?

I have to agree with you on the shopping. Macau likely now has more Louis Vitton shops per capita and square mile than anywhere else in the world.
