NATIONAL GAMBLING IMPACT STUDY COMMISSION
N G I S C Chicago Meeting, May 20, 1998
MS. KIESHA JOHNSON
CHAIRMAN JAMES: Kiesha Johnson.
MS. JOHNSON: Hello, Commission. I just want to thank you for inviting me to speak today. My name is Kiesha Johnson and I work for Trump casino in Gary, Indiana. My job classification on Trump is I work for the deli. Before I started at Trump casino I was working at a gas station for $4.25 an hour. I was barely making ends meet for me and my daughter.
Working for Trump has been a great experience for me because when I started at Trump I was just making $5.50 an hour, now I am the lead of the deli making $10. Without Trump I wouldn't have any insurance. It is really important to me to have medical insurance because when I had a bad car accident, I didn't have any problems with the insurance. If I hadn't had the insurance, I wouldn't have been able to pay me and my daughter's doctor bills.
In closing I just want to say that I thank God every day for my job and thank Trump for letting me be a part of their team. Thank you.
CHAIRMAN JAMES: I think we have time for maybe one or two off of our waiting list.
