Wynn wins, dealers lose

Jul 12, 2010 4:45 PM

In a ruling handed down on Monday, Steve Wynn’s decision to include supervisors in the distribution of dealers’ tip money doesn’t violate Nevada’s laws, according to a ruling by Labor Commissioner Michael Tanchek.

The long-awaited decision strikes a blow to dealers who saw their weekly income drop substantially when supervisors, who were being paid less than the dealers, found their paychecks upgraded because of the addition of tip money.

Attorneys for the dealers said the ruling would be appealed to Nevada District Court.
