Gaming giant offers each of its 13,600 employees a MOP$1,000 (U$S 125) grant.
Macau.- Wynn Macau Ltd has announced that it will financially support all of its 13,600 employees with a one-off grant of MOP$1,000 (U$S125).
The news comes shortly after Macau’s Secretary for Economy and Finance, Lei Wai Nong, revealed an economic support plan for residents in the SAR.
According to Inside Asian Gaming, Wynn Macau decided to follow the government’s lead by introducing a similar card-based program, “WynnCare Macau Pass” with an initial balance of MOP$1000.
“Use it to support all the small and vitally important restaurants, shops and other SMEs in our community that are facing great difficulty right now,” a statement sent to employees, said.
Measures introduced by the government include a US$1.3billion fund that will be used to give eligible taxpayers a monthly grant of $600 for a period of three months, or $1,800 in total.
This grant will only be made available to Macau residents, with migrant workers specifically excluded from receiving the support.
Macau companies and self-employed individuals will be entitled to a grant ranging from $1,900 to $25,000, depending on the number of employees hired.
