Lobbyists for the establishment of casinos often rationalize what the gambling house can give to the people in the area on which they will be built. The creation of jobs for the people living in the community as well as the increase in city revenue are all bright promises from the proponents. If these look like good intentions and advantages for the people, why then would the constituents of the Big Apple oppose the addition of casinos in their neighbourhood?
If we are going to measure the opposing party, it is only but a handful of unorganized and budget-less groups. Nevertheless, they are making their voices heard. Read on to find out the truth behind the creation of these adult gaming facilities.
New casinos are said to bring more jobs in the city. Sure, there are additional employment opportunities for the people in the community but the kind of jobs that they bring are less than desirable. For one, the jobs that need to be filled are those of the lower ranks. The casino company bring their middle management folks in the area where they are setting up. They want to run the new branch with their trusted men rather than hire new ones from the surrounding community.
New casinos are believed to generate more income for the city. The income earned from casinos are really big, but, only at the onset of operations. Varying factors contribute its decline. When another casino sets up shop, gamblers usually check them out and do not come back to the previous one. The increasing rate of unemployment is also likely to lessen the patrons that frequent the casinos. There may be a few gambling addicts who would find their means to fund their addiction, but again, they are only a handful.
No one can discount the fact that gambling cause crime rate to rise. Those who can’t live without getting their hands on poker chips, rolling the dice and similar activities are more likely to resort to thievery and even high-scale robbery to pay off their debts.
With all the above mentioned factors and scenarios, how can New York City residents welcome gambling establishments in their hometown? The disadvantages and risks far outweigh the benefits. The advantages are temporary and to some extent, not morally acceptable.
