The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says diversity hiring is rising at the 13 casinos across the state.
The board's annual Diversity Report indicates a year-to-year progression in diversity hiring. Director of Diversity Mozelle Daniels said casinos have done an excellent job of minority hiring.
“This year we’re at 29.7 percent, or I should say 30 percent, last year we were at 25.4, and [in 2010] we were at 17 percent,” Daniels said.
While goals, or quotas, are illegal to set Daniels said, the casinos wouldn’t need them.
