Dover Downs Casino Threatens Layoffs

Posted: Updated:

 

DOVER, Del. - Hundreds of people could soon be out of work at Dover Downs.

The Casino is threatening layoffs for hundreds of workers, and says it will close restaurants if Delaware lawmakers don't lower the company's taxes. However, Governor Markell will not budge on the deal, possibly because the state relies on its revenue to balance the budget.

Dover Downs is already $60 million in debt, and has lost more than $280,000 in the first quarter of 2013. They are also facing competition from new casinos in Maryland.
