3,000 Lose Their Jobs As Trump Taj Mahal Closes

Tags: Atlantic City, Carl Icahn, Donald Trump, Trump Taj Mahal
Posted on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 by "T".
Following a more than 100 days strike by union members over no health and pensions benifits, Trump Taj Mahal closed down on Monday. The casino, which costed nearly 1 billion dollars and opened 26 years ago, was once called "the eighth wonder of the world" by former owner and republican president candidate Donald Trump. "There's no reason for this," Trump told The Associated Press in a r[...]   Read more » 3,000 Lose Their Jobs As Trump Taj Mahal Closes

I never thought i would see the day that this colossus closed down. Back in the day, this was the largest and most famous casino in the world and it is a shame to see it closing down

well me ponders that no one closes such colossal piece of real estate for the reason that bricks are falling from the ceiling onto blackjack players heads. this looks like more of a paper bankruptcy. they will re-open when they reshuffle their main costs and open when ready to do business and actually make some money for the owners instead of generating losses all the time.

most likely it is just another financial transaction ... will destroy the building and in its place are structured new ... many people earn on this good money ... and the people who get fired from work let employed on the construction site of the new building)) Of course this is only my guess is, but everything can be ...

Let's hope the Trump Taj Mahal will reopen someday, like others that have recently gone under. Showboat, which closed its doors two years ago, has reopened as a hotel. And the new owner of the Revel, which also stopped operating in 2014, hopes to launch a new property in Atlantic City soon.

We have heard the news about it in the recent past.
No wonder it ended up there.
Still amazing as i have said again the number of people working in this hotel casinos.

The gambling section has taken a hit worldwide with all the governments asking more and
Economic crisis is also a reason.

Perhaps not in accordance with the law to the president candidate has business relations with casinos or gambling,surely his advisers have given such instructions
I do not believe that they had no customers, such a large casino can not be in the negative balance
too bad for workers, many people lost their jobs, everyone is family, no money how will feed
I think that there is no economic crisis is concerned, it is a political deal

One of the reasons casinos are having difficulties is that people can now play at home, online in front of their computers.
another one is that now a days it is harder to have black money, back in the days a lot of people had a double administration, one for white and one for black money. Casinos made a lot of profit because there were a lot of people spending their black money in casinos.
New times and people will loose their jobs, people need to find work in new fields and keep learning new skills.

Why he don´t sell this great Casino, it seems that he closed the Casino definetly forever. It seems, that he do that for his political career, but in the past he did what he want and gives nothing about the People can thinking.

Makes sense. They were on strike to re-establish their gutted benefits, now they have no jobs to return to whatsoever. Looks like everybody got what they wanted.
Including the owner who could file a bankruptcy claim 4 the casino and then just manage off the net losses - which come from closing down - from his own tax report.
Good con.

So! Whole I don't profess to have any great affiliation towards 'The Donald' I just wonder whether this is news that is news for a reason? If it's one of a number of casinos closing down then it's just anot her casino, but the way the headline is written sounds like it's Mr Trumps fault! Bad news making bad news.

Cuando vamos para 3 años desde que se puso en marcha la regulación del juego online en España, empezamos a tener una perspectiva global sobre lo que está suponiendo en el sector. Aunque, no solamente en el sector, ya que la economía general del país hace que cada vez más gente quiera probar suerte, buscando una fuente de ingresos que, hasta el momento, no habían tenido en cuenta. Los anuncios por televisión, radio e internet, y la promeas de un supuesto "juego seguro" hacen que parezca viable el intento. Pero... ¿se puede ganar o no? No hay un crupier, las cartas se barajan solas, ocurren jugadas muy raras que, según dicen, en vivo no se suelen ver con tanta frecuencia. ¿Permiten las salas ganar dinero a los novatos dándoles cartas favorables para que luego lo pierdan? ¿Es un señuelo de las salas para atraer jugadores y que sólo ganen unos cuantos? ¿Sólo es posible ganar teniendo contactos dentro de las salas?

A lo largo de este hilo daré mi punto de vista, el cual puede coincidir o no con lo que tú pienses. Pero te puedo decir que mi mentalidad, desde que el poker online no era un juego muy conocido en España, hasta ahora, ha ido cambiando conforme iba aprendiendo más cosas sobre el juego y conforme iba siendo un jugador cada vez más sólido. Por lo tanto, si estás en un punto donde comienzas a conocer el juego, date tiempo, ya que el bagaje en torneos y partidas e informarte con otros jugadores te acaba dando la clave de lo que este negocio es en realidad. Si eres un jugador experto y aún así no estás de acuerdo con mi punto de vista, igual también es interesante que leas todo el hilo. Voy a intentar acomodarlo a las normas del foro, y aunque en una de ellas nos dicen "2. En general está prohibido hablar de dinero real excepto con una finalidad formativa o didáctica", considero que puede quedar igual de bien ajustándome al espíritu de hablar de unidades. Luego también tenemos "9. No se admitirán contenidos que pretendan vehicular, implícita o explícitamente, la idea de que las apuestas en general, o una apuesta en concreto, son una manera a través de la que ganar dinero rápida y fácilmente", que es justo la idea que yo quiero seguir con este hilo, hablar de si el poker es válido o no como forma de ganar dinero a largo plazo.
