Macau.- About 89 per cent of casino workers in middle and senior management positions at the six big Macau casino operators are local.

The secretary for economy and finance, Lei Wai Nong, told TDM Radio that the percentage is in accordance with the government’s target for local labour at casinos, which should be no lower of 85 per cent.

Secretary Lei also noted that the percentage of local labour has maintained an upward trend in recent years.

As of December 2020, there were 9,940 middle and high-level managers at “big six” operators and 89 per cent of them were local employees.

As of December 2020, gaming operators were hiring 26,102 non-resident workers, accounting for about 24 per cent of workers. The figure is down by 9,008 compared to the previous year.

However, due to the pandemic labour unions have raised other concerns regarding working conditions, claiming workers have been forced to resign.
