NEW YORK (Reuters) - Las Vegas casino operator MGM Mirage MGM.N has said it is cutting 440 jobs, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, signaling the effect of a slowing economy on the casino industry.
A significant part of the cuts will be made in Las Vegas where MGM Mirage owns 10 properties, the report said, quoting the casino operator’s spokesman Alan Feldman.
“It’s no secret: Business levels are down,” Feldman was quoted as saying in the report.
MGM Mirage representatives were not immediately available for comment.
