Atlantic City, NJ — The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa has announced plans to embark on a $200 million addition — phase one of a $535 million upgrade — that will add approximately 1,500 new jobs in various areas of the casino. UNITE HERE Local 54 President Robert McDevitt believes that this expansion will "create opportunities for members all over the city as jobs open up," and expects that most of the new employees will be restaurant workers in three restaurants and eight dining outlets.
"The casino is known for its very progressive leadership," McDevitt told The Press of Atlantic City. "The average employee at Borgata has a better work environment than members at other casinos in town. It’s not to say they don’t have some problems on occasion, but it is a great place to work. They do well and the employees do quite well in return."
