Major Macau IR operators employ 108,000 people

The six major IR operators in Macau are directly employing more than 108,000 people as of 2018, according to a survey made by Macau Business.

In order of staff size, the six concessionaires employ the following numbers of executives and workers: Sands (28,300); Galaxy (21,000); SJM (20,400); Melco (15,800); Wynn (12,500); and MGM (10,400).

All six of these companies intend to bid for a major market IR license in Japan with the possible exception of SJM, which has verbally expressed interest in the Japanese market but has yet to make concrete moves.

Thousands of Japanese workers are expected to be directly employed by the IR operators after the first Japanese facilities open in the mid-2020s.
