Greed rules, casinos prove it

The recent Attorney General's report on casinos and proceeds of crime coming up against the plight of casino workers trying to get a decent wage is startling, to say the least.

The casinos benefitted from criminal money laundering and did so with eyes wide open.

Who else other than criminals would come into a casino with a duffel bag full of $20 bills?

Casinos greedily accepted those funds and are now caught out. The casinos did this over a period of years. The owners and senior management need to have all their personal assets seized as they are proceeds of crime. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The casinos need to be seized and closed until new owners/managers are recruited.

Caught in the middle are the every day workers trying to make ends meet on a daily basis. They are entitled to a decent wage. Management and owners don’t really care about them as they are too focused on their own greed as demonstrated by them turning a blind eye to dirty money.

Time to put the owners and senior management in their place and provide an equitable wage settlement for those casino workers.

Nothing will happen. Those who profited from this open criminal activity will escape any justice. No one has the balls to do the right thing. That shows everyone the hold criminals have on B.C. 

Money laundering is pervasive throughout our economy; the criminal and greedy get richer.

Greed rules! So very sad.
