Abstract

The Opportunity for “Easy Money” Working in Gaming?

“Miss R., You’re pretty…Why don’t you become a cocktail waitress at a casino? You would make more money than teaching.”

– A ten year-old girl in Henderson, NV; a student quote as relayed during conversation in 1999 by Miss Laura R., a 4th grade teacher.

With a freshly minted master’s degree in education and six years classroom experience, Miss Laura R. was pulling in $33,000 gross annually. A contemporary cocktail waitress at a mid-range to premium property was pulling in 2x to 3x her salary
