I'm not complaining , I'm happy as can be - you guys are complaining that union employees get paid to much money and benefits ...which to me makes no sense , why anyone would want other people to make less money and have no benefits unless they are the employer . I hope everyone makes as much money as possible - and when I said the employer has nothing to do with the tips is that they are not paying the tips so its not costing the company anything - and as I do agree that some things could be handled a different way - I just as an employee people would be happy that we are able to make a good living , because that's good for everyone in the community .

So you don't take into the account that we make $18 an hour but pay taxes like we make $30 so our paychecks are $600 every two weeks . So you want me to make less money because your pay got cut ? Really ? That's pretty stupid way to look at things ..... And what we make in tips has nothing to do with the employer ...and you choose to apply for the job that you work at correct? So you would rather billionaires keep the money than everyday normal people , that will spend it in the Las Vegas community , I dunno how some of you think but it's not very smart - you want the rich to get richer -

Obviously, none of you that posted are union employees or have
held a job at a Las Vegas Casino . You guys would rather
the owner of the company which is probably billionaire, to
make even more money than they already do. Why would
anyone not root for everyone in this city to make more
money and get benefits and a pension, instead you people
are rooting for a billionaire to make more money.... So according
To the people that post you would like everyone to make minimum wage
And get no health benefits even though the casinos are make hundreds
Of millions of dollars ...please tell me why anyone would not want
Everyone to make more money ? And if you know what your talking
About the union is not striking , it's just picketing to send a message
That they are serious , Cosmo has had 18 months since their employees
Decided they wanted to go union. I think that is more than
Long enough to get a contract done. And also the union is asking for
Any raises so people that say we are asking for raises do not
Have a clue , we are just asking for our health benefits
Be covered and keep the pay the same . And if you feel sorry
For these owners and think their not making any money than
Obviously you aren't working in the casino industry, because
If the owner is make hundreds of millions of dollars, it is only
Fair to pay your employees an acceptable wage. This is not
A mom and pop companies , these are 500 million to 5 billion
Dollar properties , so if you think the owners are gonna use
That money they would save by being non- union on more jobs
You guys are crazy - that's just more money for the billionaires ...
SO UNLESS YOUR A CASINO OWNER IT MAKES ABSOLUTELY
NO SENSE WHY YOU WOULDN'T WANT EMPLOYEES TO
MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE AND GET BENEFITS
BECAUSE THAT WILL ONLY BENEFIT NON-UNION PLACES
TO OFFER BETTER WAGES AND POSSIBLY HEALTHCARE IF
THEY WANT TO GET THE BETTER EMPLOYEE (I.e Veneitian)

So that's all - tired of bitter people that are mad because someone
Makes more money than them or has a great job -you would love to
Have a job like this so quit your crying and promote better work
Environment and better pay !
