LAY OFFS: Seneca Gaming Corp. to cut 210 jobs

The struggling economy has evidently caught up with the local gaming industry.

The Seneca Gaming Corp. announced on Tuesday plans to lay off a total of 210 of the 4,800 employees who work at its casino operations in Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Salamanca. In addition, the company plans to suspend its year-end bonus program and implement salary reductions for members of its board of directors and senior management. Salaried employees earning more than $70,000 will also have their wages frozen. The corporation said it will provide severance to employees, depending on their position and levels of seniority.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
