NATIONAL GAMBLING IMPACT STUDY COMMISSION
N G I S C Chicago Meeting, May 20, 1998
MR. ROBERT LUCIOUS, III
CHAIRMAN JAMES; Robert Lucious.
MR. LUCIOUS: Good afternoon. My name is Robert Lucious III. I'm 20 years old and I'm from Gary, Indiana. I'm employed by Valet Parking Services at Buffington Harbor casinos. I've been working for Valet Parking Services for about one year and six months. The reason I feel the casinos are good for Northwest Indiana is because Gary, Indiana really doesn't have a variety of jobs besides fast food. Before I started working in the casino business, I was working at McDonald's. The fast food industry doesn't have benefits like the casinos. The casinos have brought good benefits like health benefits and dental benefits. The job has also helped me get my own car, my own apartment and has also helped provide for me and my one year old son.
CHAIRMAN JAMES: Thank you very much.
