Macau Unions calls for pay rise for gaming employees

The Macau Federation Trade Union has called for a pay rise for Macau’s gaming employees, submitting a joint petition to city’s major operators on Tuesday morning, according to local reports.

Kelvin Choi Kam Fu, who heads the association, said that although the sector is experiencing some difficulties, major operators should still be able to raise their staff’s salaries. “Although the gaming industry is undergoing a period of adjustment, it is still making acceptable amounts of money. We think that the gaming enterprises are able to raise their staff’s salaries.”

Two gaming companies have already announced their end-of-year bonuses for employees, Choi said.
