|Do you think seniors are being taken advanage of by casinos? I asked a group of seniors how many times in the past year they saw a film. Answers: once, zero, twice. How about gone to the casino. Ans:100, 85. 52. Casinos send busses to ship them to their business. It takes hours both ways. Some say it is a social event, but there are lots of events that don't involve gambling. From the one casino I saw, 80% of the people were seniors(daytime-weekdays) and 90% (days-weekend) I'm just concerned seniors are being taken advanage of by an industry known to be not that ethical. Sorry, I just noticed this shouldn't be under the book part of entertainmnt, but I'm going to post it anyway, then find another area.|
