The Casino Myth


Gamble vs. Sure Bet

The Odds are NOT Great… for getting a job in a new Ohio casino!

When you know the facts – you won’t gamble your future on a job in gaming at an Ohio casino. While out-of-state schools and casino owners are painting a pretty picture for boosting Ohio jobs… they don’t tell you the whole story.


A GAMBLE…
Got high hopes for landing a dealer job at a new Toledo casino? Beware… you’re competing with thousands of other applicants for only about 400 dealer jobs. And many of the out-of-state applicants are coming in with a competitive edge… experience!

A SURE BET…
History matters. In Lucas County alone, the Liquor Control Department has issued more than 2,200 liquor licenses to bars, restaurants and other facilities. If each one employs an average of 6 bartenders… that adds up to more than 12,000 bartending jobs right here in our own region!

A GAMBLE…
The future is uncertain in the casino industry – it’s been hit hard by the downturn in the U.S. and global economy. Industry analysts and consultants have called it a “dismal outlook” with CNBC Business Report citing a 20% revenue loss in the casino industry that has yet to recover.

A SURE BET…
Crain’s Toledo Business cites a big upswing in sales of locally brewed beers and a rebound in urban vitality -- with more people choosing to live near downtown Toledo – where they support entertainment, retail, restaurants and bars.

Compared to “rolling the dice” on a casino job --
bartending offers you a “sure bet” …
a solid career future with thousands of stable jobs
throughout Northern Ohio!
