Whatever became of the employees? Were they moved to other Pinnacle properties, or just cut loose?

Only a handful of the 200+ employees from the President were actually transferred to either River City or Lumiere Place. And those that were got offered significantly less money and jobs 1-2 levels below their present job level and lost their seniority with the company (completely different than an internal transfer from any other Pinnacle property). So in essence, a new hire at River City would have more seniority than a 10-year veteran from the President. Not very good HR practices if you ask me... and doesn't sound completely legal to me...?
Most of those people are now collecting unemployment or have moved on or just plain moved. In any case, they have now become part of our nations' economic/unemployment issues.

Not surprised to hear this. Many sad stories among AC Sands employees, too. Only satisfaction is that the company will take a major hair cut on the now vacant lot-which has only recently been cleaned up since going on the market.

I was a security officer there. They didn't give us jobs. I applied at Lumiere about 8 times before the President closed and they only hired a few managers. The rest of us were left hanging. Todd George and Dan Lee are garbage.
