10/31/08 - Oneidas: Business OK despite layoffs


As many as 100 Oneida Indian Nation employees have been laid off, despite the fact that business continues to grow, officials said Thursday. The layoffs were an attempt to avoid troubles that have beset other casinos such as Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut and the Seneca Nation’s casino near Buffalo, said Peter Carmen, senior vice president for the Nation, which owns Turning Stone Resort and Casino.
