Macau sheds 1,000 VIP jobs since July

At least 1,000 staff of VIP gaming rooms have been laid off since July as a result of China’s anti-graft tactics that have sparked declines in high-roller player levels.

According to Lei Kuok Keong, vice-director of the trade union Forefront of Macau Gaming Union one-third of Macau’s VIP rooms have closed temporarily or permanently because of the slump in gaming, Macau Business reported.

Lei says those who have lost their jobs include cashiers, accountants, public relations staff, customer service staff and drivers.
