More Magic Layoffs

Casino Magic Biloxi eliminated more jobs today. 70 people were laid off today, about half of them part-timers.

Security officers stood outside Casino Magic's distribution center today. They waited for the former workers to stop by and turn in their uniforms. The news release said this was the final phase of a company wide reorganization. Casino Magic executives blamed the workforce reduction on current economic conditions. A little more than a month ago, Casino Magic Biloxi eliminated 60 jobs for the same reason.

This latest move leaves the casino with a staff of about 900 workers.
