From Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Nearly 12 years ago, hundreds of Wynn Las Vegas dealers filed the first of several lawsuits against the company to stop what they consider to be the unlawful sharing of their tips with “casino service team leads,” who dealers claim are supervisors.
The amount at stake is about $50 million, according to Wynn Resorts and Josh Buck, a lawyer representing the dealers. Wynn agreed to pay an additional $463 million to settle its battle with Universal.
Maddox raised dealer pay by $2 an hour — equivalent to an annual increase of about $4,000 — just two months into his tenure. It was the dealers’ first raise in about a decade.
But for several dealers who talked to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it doesn’t compare to what they lost.
