Casinos and Casino Hotels

Industry Outlook

Employment in gaming services occupations is expected to grow by 5 percent through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), about as fast as the average for all careers. The popularity of gaming establishments will create some demand for gaming workers. More states are seeking to take advantage of the tax and tourism revenue generated by casinos and are considering licensing new casinos or allowing other forms of gambling. In 2018, U.S. casinos and the makers of games found inside casinos employed 1.8 million people and contributed $261 billion to the U.S. economy, including $38 billion in tax revenues to local, state, and federal governments, according to the American Gaming Association (AGA). Public opinion regarding the ethics of gambling, as well as its importance to the U.S. economy, is also changing. In 2018, approximately 90 percent of Americans viewed casino gaming as acceptable for themselves or others, according to the AGA.
