Oh, but that tax money! That's what keeps all the states going back for more, to the tune of $33 billion in 2011 alone. Maryland casinos are bringing in over $65 million in revenue a month, and that's before the Horseshoe even opens. That's a lot of coin in the ol' coffers, money that can be used for things we all ostensibly want, like education, health care subsidies, and filling this winter's potholes. And the jobs-the jobs! "Don't Just Work for a Company. Work for a Legend," the Horseshoe Casino's website exclaims. Mayor SRB has argued casino jobs should go to local workers, and the casino's taking its recruitment to the streets of our city, hosting what they call "Horseshoe Baltimore Legendary Academies" at such hiring hotspots as Our Daily Bread Employment Center, several branches of the Enoch Pratt Library, and many others. The casino expects to hire nearly 1,700 workers, and surrounding businesses will surely hire as well. The ripple effects will be huge, they say, and gaming can be managed responsibly (enough) to (somewhat) mitigate potential harms.
