Maryland casino eyes soon-to-be-fired AC workers
ATLANTIC CITY (AP) — A Maryland casino is looking to hire some of the soon-to-be-jobless Atlantic City casino workers.
Maryland Live! is holding job fairs Aug 1 and 2 at the Sheraton hotel across from the Atlantic City Convention Center.
The Hanover, Maryland casino held a similar recruitment effort in Atlantic City in January when The Atlantic Club shut down.
Spokeswoman Carmen Gonzalez says the company hired 50 Atlantic City workers then, and hopes to at least match that total.
With the impending closings of the Showboat on Aug. 31 and Trump Plaza on Sept. 16, and the possible shutdown of Revel if a buyer isn't found soon, as many as 8,000 Atlantic City casino workers could be without work by the end of the summer.
