    Their wages are laughable and I can’t imagine the roles and job design is much better. Their wages make St. George look like Silicon Valley. When a casino is offering FREE dealer classes they are desperate and are nothing more than a break in joint. How about rather than paying money for sponsored ads and making your marketing team promote HR related issues, bump wages up, reduce human capital turnover, and maybe even let the marketing team do what they are typically supposed to do and do actually do in real gaming entities,… promote and market opportunities for player and event development.
