Large Numbers of Gamblers Cross Picket Lines at Trump Taj Mahal
- July 4, 2016 By Samantha A. -
As many union members strike as they walk the picket line in front of the Trump Taj Mahal Casino that is located in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday July 1st many gamblers crossed the line.
Many patrons of the Taj Mahal Casino crossed the striking picket lines in very large numbers in the midst of the members of the striking union members shouting taunts.
Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union raised the stakes against the Casino, this casino was opened in the year of 1990 by Donald Trump but is currently owned by his close friend Carl Icahn.
A very steady stream of dedicated patrons filed into the casino off of the Boardwalk as they braved the amplified taunts from the picketing workers as they warned the patrons that dead mice have been found in side of this building. Inside the casino the extensive floor was full of activity, although it only had about half the number of patrons that were playing at the casino and right next5 door which was not facing a strike.
It was stated by Benjamin Albert who is an organizing director for the union that hundreds of mice were found within the kitchen area of this casino. He continued by stating that if you are a person that likes roaches and mice then stay at the Taj Mahal, but if you want a casino that cares about their employees, stay somewhere else.
Benjamin was questioned by a reporter and stated that this information came from the inspection reports that were reported by the Atlantic City Health Department within the time frame of March through August of the year 2015. These reports stated that there were 282 instances of mice and/or rodent feces although the casino.
The city’s Health Department was closed on a Sunday and the management of the Taj Mahal did not immediately respond to a request for comment on this situation.
