Two Dozen Casino Workers Arrested for Protesting in Atlantic City [VIDEO]
It certainly hasn't been easy for Atlantic City casino workers in the past few months. With four casinos closing their doors, and some threatening to close, a large group of people decided to let their voice be heard.
These workers weren't necessarily protesting for their jobs, they were protesting to keep their benefits. Sources say that Trump Entertainment Resorts and billionaire Carl Icahn demanded Taj workers to give up their pensions and health insurance to keep the casino open. (NBC 40)
Hmmm.....well that's going to go over really well.
The disgruntled employees ended up sitting in the middle of the intersection of Arkansas and Arctic Avenues. Two dozen Trump Taj Mahal employees were taken in custody.
