This is a comment for the Station Casino: You people must be crazy, you screw people out of their pay and you want breathing room? to the employees or who ever has the power to grant the Station Casino's request. Think of about the money problems these employees might be having because of the dirty deeds this casino has leveled on these employees or try putting yourself in their place. Make them deal with the situation now!!!!!!!!!!
They might be asking for this break so that they can use that time to complete their bankruptcy procedure and then the employee will be out of luck cause the courts have already granted them the bankruptcy. Don't let them get away with it.
Boycott them

They just layed off 60 people today at Boulder and that is just one they did this to other casinos What are the people going to do? This is a local casino and I'm going to ask people in Vegas to boycott this casinos if they want to do this to locals than lets give them a taste of their medicine. If all locals in this town stand up we can close them down.

Instead of offering spanish classes why not offer english classes, these people chose to come to the united states to reap the rewards. why not learn the language of the country you adopted to live in. Station Casinos has been very good to so many people for so many years, i am tired of hearing how ungrateful some people are. Noone put a rope around your neck or forced you to stay the door swings both ways. Your not happy well guess what in america you have choices so go somewhere else. why not go to a union property its your choice but dont shove the union down my throat cause at stations we dont want them!!!!!!!!!! GET THE MESSAGE!!!!!!!!!!

At stations we have the greatest respect for our guests, dont let a small group of people influence the rest of you to boycott our facilities. We do the very best we can to give you a fun experience everytime you walk through our doors. I go to other gaming establishments and i dont get treated the way our employees treat our guests. Our company will get through this trying time and will be stronger then they were before. So just bear with us things will get better. Inspite of what others might say we always put our guests first. We have the utmost respect for all of you! So please keep coming we welcome you always!!!!!!!! Its my pleasure to wait on you!!!!!

I finally applaud someone who spoke positively of Station Casinos. They are the TOP CASINO in LAS VEGAS, and the Fertitta family has always treated us with the utmost respect. To all you negative morons, you still cash your checks, why don't you just quit and try to find greener pastures, then you will realize there is no place like home.

This casino and others will always hire an illegal alien rather than an American. They begged the illegals not to march on wetback day so they could take their petition directly to Washington D.C.
The casinos have been and will always cater to illegal aliens instead of Americans.
As for American workers, good luck at getting a decent wage to live on from these GREEDY bastards. The upper management in casinos are way over paid and they don't care about the employees.
The amount of illegal aliens in Las Vegas is sickening.
I moved away from a border city and I am shocked to see the amount of illegals working and living here in Las Vegas. I frequent casinos and half the employees can't even speak English.
Welcome to Las Vegas, mexico???
20% unemployed Americans and 1% illegal aliens.
Gotta love America ILLEGALS DO.

I'm proud to be employeed by stations, and
God Bless the Fertitta family. I'v been in the casino business for 13yrs, working for other companies and station casinos is the BEST so far i've worked for. I'm very thankful for getting to take a paycheck home and feed my family and etc. It is hard times for everyone right now and they are doing an awsome job trying to keep most of us employeed. Lets just say: you have to weed out the garden sometime so the grass can grow! The employees that were layed off mabey had a lot of write ups and were to laxed on their jobs. if i owned the business i would do what they did, They are very smart. and once again, I'm proud to be a station employee.

Didn't Station Casino go thru bankruptcy a few years ago? If so, they need to get profitable fast or get liquidated. Then everyone is out of work. You union types need to face the music.

"cahrito" buddy. My guess is you are good for maybe $4 per hour worth of production for the business. You better keep your mouth shut and take what they give you.

I'm an American, my fiancee' is in Afghanistan fighting for our so-called freedom. I lost my employment at Station Casino. I signed write-ups that I should'nt have. I've been replaced by a Russian and a Lebonise, you could'nt even understand them. I'm sure there english is better now. Station Casinos' can and will rot in HELL! People that are making comments that the company is great, get paid for it. The people I know who work there walk with there head down, as to not call attention to themselves so they don't get fired.I know, they've told me, everyone is afraid of loosing there jobs, except the ones who have just been hired.By the way I'm not racist. But,come on now, look at the economy. Americans, We are getting screwedand we are the ones screwing ourselves!

Oh, and regarding the suit. As an employee you had to clock out on time, then go back to work if not you were written up. I was fired like I said for signing stuff I did'nt have to for supposedly being late yet my pay was never docked!

To John, I agree with you. I understand spanish and many of the spanish speaking people talk alot of crap and they're lazy.Not all some.They're uneducated, they grab a pail of water and mop and just walk around making comments about women. Nasty ones, they're from Mexico, HELLOOO. Central Americans are even worse as far as comments. Trust me there is a differance.

Yeah, I'm sure you would like them to quit then you dont have to pay unemployment, right! The Fertitta Family, who are they? The only thing they gave me was a job and that paycheck I worked my ass off for it and in return I got fired. By the way did I mention my married supervisor having an affair with a teamember? Oh, my manager knew but, it seems the supervisor is good friends with some bigshot who also works for the company and rumor is they have alot of dirt on eachother, Manager needs to grow some BALLS!

Were Boulder is located, in that area, It's walking distance for those with no vehicles and the older people get comfortable going tho the same place. it's a routine. Wish it could be done!

Does Station casinos, particularly the Fart-tita brothers, cut any slack to any patrons who owe them any money, like markers??
Highly doubtful. The Fart-titas are a frikin joke and a complete disgrace to the gambling world. CHEAP as hell....I have driven these people in limos and gotten them comped into some of the local clubs and they tip very poorly at best. Lorenzo and Dana white actually stiffed me after I dropped their entourage of 10 at a famous club and comped them inside where they probably dropped 30-40k (according to the doorman the next night) My comp saved them over $400 and they tipped nothing...
