We stay in downtown Vegas, so this may not be true of the strip. We also go to Reno. Over the past few years it seems that a very high percentage of the table dealers are recent foreign arrivals, many struggling with their English. In Reno and some of the downtown casinos Chinese are particularly common (their name tags have their name and home country). For any of you who work in or have insider info on the industry, I'm curious. Why is this occurring? And is this some sort of H-1B visa scam? We constantly hear about "jobs Americans won't do," but I can't believe that casino dealer jobs fall into that category. Yet it is getting very rare for me to sit down at a table where I have a dealer with a name tag showing a U.S. hometown. Maybe it's because of the places I play, and the fact that I'm not in the high limit room?
