Sure ... some sweat , some skill , some pressure ...

Not like knowing how to count ... That should be a basic life skill.

good for a laugh....51 pages of comments, with the lion's share of them being from a select few individuals...and repeatedly Donald Trump-like in nature, geared towards the working person making a stand. To those I say....move along, nothing to see here. Personally, I will continue to tip as I always have when it comes to the Casino....nothing, because I don't go to Casino's. I do however have an interest is standing up for values, and one thing is certain. This employer has means, it would have to be a very small minded person to think otherwise.

What’s truly small-minded (read: union mentality) is thinking any business that does what it hopes to do which is turn a profit automatically owes more of that profit to workers on the principle of “because it has the means”.

in this case, yes,...Absolutely without any doubt. It is a casino.....and no, I don't expect you'll get that, nor do I care.

What does that have to do with anything? Using a business as being "this" or "that" as an argument is laughable.

The problem with Union Worshiper's is that the company, management will always be the "bad guy" no matter what.

I'm confused.

I thought, as a BCGEU member for the last 18 years, and a steward for the last four or five, that I had a decent understanding of how this stuff works. But people who spoke very confidently (therefore must know more than I) were certain that the union was negotiating from a position of zero leverage, that they should be thankful they have jobs at all, and that despite running at reduced capacity, that Gateway was actually better off without their unionized staff and they ought to leave them hanging in the wind forever.

This seems like a substantial wage increase for a group who's job action was nothing more than a minor inconvenience to the employer. It's starting to seem like some posters were just trying to paint this situation a certain way, because it suits their worldview. Would people on the Castanet forums really do that?

I also chuckle at those sharing their revenge fantasies of withholding tips to punish the unionized staff. Before you do this, go back to the narrative that all the striking workers would have to resign and find new jobs because of their foolishness. That blackjack dealer you refuse to tip may ne a new hire who had nothing to do with the strike. I suggest you ask around, find a dealer or bartender or restaurant server who's been there for a while, and then not tip them.

And wouldn't taking your business elsewhere be the sweetest revenge at all? No customers, no tips, no business, equals no revenue and layoffs. That'd teach em, wouldn't it?
Finding something on the internet that aligns with your worldview, is not research.

Yes, it certainly seems like a large increase. But its pretty much bang on the increase in minimum wage that is happening over the same time span.
