Oxford Casino Searches Out of State for Employees
A casino scheduled to open later this yearin western Maine is coming under fire for going out of state in itssearch for workers. The Oxford Casino posted 22 openings on casinocareers.com,including security officers, dealers, a human resources clerk andmanagement positions. Dennis Bailey of CasinosNO says it’s evidence of whatanti-casino activists have been saying since before the 2010referendum that approved the Oxford Casino – that jobs will largelygo to people from out of state. Casino management counters that it is only looking outside ofMaine for people who already have extensive casino experience andstill plans to train Maine residents to staff the facility. Theytell the Sun Journal it’s also an opportunity for Maine natives to return home.
