Former Customers Speak Up For Ameristar Workers

After Ameristar workers reached out to their community asking for a boycott of the casino, customers began to respond—saying they wouldn’t be back until a fair contract was settled. Two former customers share why they are boycotting:

I used to play at Ameristar. I decided I wouldn’t go there anymore because if they couldn’t at least keep the same insurance plan that the workers there had, then I would help by not going.Ameristar’s not doing it for the workers, they’re more for themselves. They’re more worried about their money that’s coming in.

I consider myself a loyal guest at Ameristar East Chicago. The employees that work there are, in my opinion, some of the best in their fields…I am a union member for 40 years in Local 17 Heat and Frost Insulators. We have a very strong presence in Northwest Indiana.I am joining the boycott of Ameristar, and am going to pass the word to all my union friends in all aspects of the building trades to do the same.
