The employees of the casino in Grasse are still waiting for their situation to be unblocked. Indeed, the employees of the gaming establishment have still not been compensated. Without jobs and without income, the staff of the Grasse casino encounter many difficulties on a daily basis. It is also very difficult to bounce back as the land-based casino sector is in a gloomy situation. Jean-Paul Bort, former staff representative, hopes that this blockage will end by the end of this month. For the moment, the employees of the Casino de Grasse can do nothing but wait.
Grasse casino employees in difficulty
The administrative closure of the casino in Grasse dates back more than five months. Since then, the situation of the employees of the Grasse establishment has become more complicated day after day. According to Jean-Paul Bort, former staff representative, the AGS (the salary guarantee scheme) have not yet paid casino employees their salaries for the month of March. The employees also did not receive their severance pay or their unemployment from Pôle Emploi. The situation must change very quickly for these people who have to pay rent and monthly payments to the bank. Still according to Jean-Paul Bort, an outcome is to be hoped for during this month, but for the moment, the casino employees must take their troubles patiently.
An even more difficult conversion
If two employees of the casino in Grasse were able to integrate the teams of gaming establishments in the region, the other employees are struggling to get back on track. Indeed, the situation of casinos is not very favorable. This is a major obstacle to job search for the employees of the Grasse establishment. Replacement is the temporary solution found by employees with little seniority. But we must admit that their situation remains problematic. The best solution for the employees of the Casino de Grasse remains the resumption of casino activities in the city.
For the moment, they must wait for their compensation which will allow them to honor their lessor and their banker. The administrative closure of the Grasse casino has undoubtedly harmed a large number of people. In addition, by the time the various allowances are released, the former employees must fend for themselves to survive. It remains to be hoped that everything will work out by the end of this month.
