With the closing of Revel and Showboat upon us, and Trump Plaza closing on Sept 15th, Atlantic City is getting prepared for the mass amount of people that will be out of work.



According to the Press of Atlantic City, 'The main casino workers union, Local 54 of Unite-HERE, is starting the resource center to help former casino workers file for unemployment, register for health insurance and get information on food stamps and other assistance.'


More than 100 workstations will be set up at the Convention Center to help process the workers’ claims, and the food bank will also be present.  The center will be called 'AC Unites Here' and will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sept. 10 at the convention center, then will move to an as-yet-undetermined location following the Trump Plaza shutdown.
