U.S. based gambling firm Caesars Entertainment announced that they're going to be reducing the comps that they offer to players in order to help fund increases in wages for their employees.
The announcement was made during a financial call with corporate shareholders, detailing the methods for how the group will work to increase employee wages. The comps are a lucrative way to draw in loyal customers, but now those perks won't be as large. Caesars is lowering the amount that they'll give out for resort stays and free food, two of the most common rewards for players who frequent the casinos.
Casino employees in spots such as Las Vegas have been fighting for higher wages for years. In 2018 workers at most of the major casinos in Sin City nearly went on strike to ask for higher wages and safety on the job. Clearly, Caesars is listening to help comply with these demands, but this is certainly an interesting way to pay for those wages.
