Foxwoods Announces Job Cuts

Foxwoods told its employees Wednesday to expect jobs cuts in the next few weeks.

Foxwoods told its employees Wednesday that job cuts are coming for the resort casino.

A spokesperson for Foxwoods released a statement Wednesday evening.

"In an effort to streamline our operations and ensure its future growth, Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation are required to make difficult decisions in the wake of increased competition and a presently declining market. In the next several weeks we will participate in the process of making a small reduction to our workforce," said Dale Wolbrink.

There is no indication as to how many jobs will be cut or what types of workers will be let go.

"With a solid strategic plan, we will work our way through these difficult times and come out of it stronger; serving the needs of what remains one of the largest work forces in the state and the region," Wolbrink said.
