Christie vows to help casino workers find new jobs

OCEAN CITY, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie is vowing to do everything he can to help laid-off Atlantic City casino workers find new jobs.

Christie promised his help as he kicked off his latest “No Pain, No Gain” summer town hall meeting in Ocean City.

Revel Casino Hotel announced this week that it will be shutting its doors next month after just over two years in business. It’s the latest in a string of recent closures.

Previous town hall events this summer have featured protests by retirees and political and labor groups. But Thursday’s ranks were dominated by casino workers who urged Christie to do more to help save their jobs.

Christie announced Wednesday he will be convening a summit Sept. 8 with stakeholders to discuss the city’s changing landscape.
