by Ray Poirier | The national economic slowdown has hit Foxwoods Resort Casino,
believed to be the largest such gambling facility in the world.

The Mashantucket Pequot Nation, owner of the Connecticut casino,
announced last week that it had laid off some 200 middle managers and hourly
workers, making up less than 2 percent of the facility’s workforce.

“This has been a difficult week for all of us,” said
Foxwoods President Barry Cregan. “It is always sad to see fellow employees
lose their jobs.”

Cregan said the impact of rising fuel, food and payroll costs
dictated the layoffs.

The job cuts came less than a month since the opening of the MGM
Grand casino that adjoins Foxwoods. MGM Grand employees were not affected by the
cutback.
