The signs of the struggling economy are again showing at Mohegan Sun Casino. Thursday night the Mayor of Montville confirmed that casino is laying off hundreds of workers, effective immediately.
Mayor Ronald McDaniel said that he's saddened by the news and that it will be difficult for those workers who got pink slips to find new jobs.
The New London Day reports that 282 employees were laid off immediately and that another 46 would be let go by the end of October.
The newspaper also reports that CEO Jeffrey Hartmann left the casino Wednesday.

yup Hopey Changey...happening all over.
They don’t accept Obamaphones as buy-ins at the blackjack table.
Doesn’t that Obama phone lady sound like Flip Wilson?
This is all George Bush's fault!
What a shame. Just saw Zack Brown up there a couple of weeks ago. People within a 60 mile radius probably depend on it for their livelihood
October 5th is national fire a Democrat day
Maybe if they accepted EBT...
Mayor Ronald McDonald, can I have fries with that?
They are supposed to keep those people on the payroll, even if they’re not making a profit. Their purpose is to Provide Jobs, haven’t they heard?
Another example of unintended(?) consequences.
When every State, County, City, Town just HAS to have its own casino etc it hurts the rest of them.
Like the man says - ‘If everyone in the company is designated a supervisor, that means when the company ‘downsizes’, a supervisor is going to have to make coffee and dump the trash’.
When do I get my free phone?
I guess they too are preparing for the comimg economic collapse.
tick ticking away
The real shame is if you have $20 to spend and your gas tank is at a quarter tank, you go try to win some more or just put 4 1/2 gallons of gas in your car. This is a down right shame that Connecticut pays so much for gas that it is killing this once great state.
Wow, layoffs in Connecticut? Now they’re a Demon-rat colored state, right?
“The newspaper also reports that CEO Jeffrey Hartmann left the casino on Wednesday an that the casino will shot down its Keno operation.”
I hope at least one of the laid-off casino employees gets a job at nbcconnecticut.com — as a copy editor. No skill or experience needed apparently.
How do you know it isn’t?
Flip’s death was kept very quiet......
Maybe Lieawatha Warren can represent them in bankruptcy.
Flips death was kept very quiet......
