A casino wil provide a few jobs at the casino, but will remove jobs from every other business in the area.
Restaurants in town(s) will lose revenue/employees.
Every other business will lose revenue/employees due to the increase of disposable income being spent at the casino.

The only real winner will be the casino and those who benefit directly from casino proceeds.

We need (& deserve) a casino here in New Bedford! The jobs will help those who need them & why should we deprive the city of money to be made? It's not fair to us (New Bedford residents) to have everyone going to another state or area to spend their money. Why not make it HERE??? People are traveling to Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun (or anywhere else) & other areas blowing their money, we should be spending it HERE in our own city. People against it usually complain "it'll bring more crime" ... we already have crime! Why not at least offer jobs to people who need them & make money here rather than somewhere else.
