So no more free travel from food to gambling with a drink in hand and no more drink specials in the Casino Bar!!!1
$7.20 for a beer that is not even a real pint!
After not paying decent wages for years, and still not - they are now trying once again to fleece their customers, probably trying to make up the shortfall from the last few months no doubt.

In fact, many of the familiar faces from the striking staff must've been laid off due to the poor turnout of customers. One dealer told us that 15 of the Kelowna dealers have been laid off. I really don't think the strike was worth it for many of the strikers, who have moved on or don't get the hours they used to get. The service is still slow from the roving staff and not particularly friendly or thankful when given tips. My hubby finds the dealer admin too strict and not a fun atmosphere at the tables in Penticton, and others have said the same.


$7.20 for a beer? Sounds like they're trying to make up for the shortfall caused by rude Casino Employees on strike calling customers scabs etc. Layoffs are just one way to make up the shortfall. High prices are another.

No one needs anything, but we law abiding citizens enjoy things in life like casinos.

Well, truth be told, the only thing we don't enjoy are people who try to run our lives, take things away that we like but they don't like just to suit their personal beliefs/agenda.

I think casino workers and their union forgot how easy it is to buy a Keno , 50/50 or Hold'em ticket in a local watering hole...

Who needs a casino for a cold pint and some gambling entertainment ???

I don't
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

I don't

Lots of people enjoy going out for a pint and a pull (slot machine you dirty birdy's) just like lots of people like going to the movies instead of watching them at home.

Its awesome that we have all these awesome choices. Boo to those who try to take those choices away.

please stop derailing the thread. It is about the strike and the aftermath. Start a new thread about gambling if you wish.
