S'pore casino hiring card dealers in Taiwan

TAIPEI: One of Singapore's integrated resort (IR) operators is recruiting card dealers in Taiwan, whose own casino plans have been put on the back burner.
The IR operator hopes to hire 150 croupiers who can expect to be paid NT$41,000 (S$1,800) to NT$50,000 a month, according to an advertisement on Taiwan's 1111 Job Bank website.
The IR operator was not named but a source confirmed that it is Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), which just received its casino licence on Saturday. RWS opened four hotels last month.
Marina Bay Sands, the other IR operator, is slated to open in April.
Asked about this, RWS spokesman Robin Goh did not deny or confirm the recruitment exercise, but said in an e-mail reply that RWS remained 'highly committed' to hiring locals as its priority.
Currently, more than 70 per cent of the nearly 7,000 staff on its payroll are locals, he added.
But he noted that it was 'a challenge to recruit locals with certain skill-sets such as those needed for the running of a casino and a world-class theme park'.
Locals might also shun some jobs, he said.
'As a result, foreign talent and workers have been hired to complement our staff strength and to help facilitate the transfer of knowledge and skills to our local hires,' said Mr Goh, who is RWS' assistant director of communications.
He did not say how many croupiers RWS planned to hire, but the IR did say last March that it would employ more than 3,000 casino workers, who would include croupiers and cashiers.
News about the job openings was reported prominently in the Taiwan media, but some human resource experts said the starting pay could not be considered attractive.
Another factor to consider was the relatively high cost of living in Singapore, they said.
Ms Lin Hsien-ya, a spokesman for 1111 Job Bank, noted that casinos in Macau offered similar wages for service personnel serving high-end customers. Croupiers usually command higher wages, she added.
But pay considerations did not stop nearly 400 people from submitting their applications, according to Ms Vickey Yang, an administrator from Casino College Taiwan, which is helping with the recruitment.
'It's not considered a high-wage job for overseas jobs. But it's a very stable job and you would be working in a big international company,' she said.
A person's horizons would expand as a result of working in cosmopolitan Singapore, she added.
Indeed, one applicant, Mr Terry Lu, 25, agreed that the job was a chance for him to work overseas and to take up a job less ordinary. 'I can go see the world and meet customers from different parts of the world,' said the fresh university graduate.

PLS TAKE NOTE, BROS, the 70% "locals" also consist of PRs. We are not sure how many are real Singaporeans....
PAP has promised that the IRs will help to recruit at least 30-40K Singaporeans... (not residents)
We want PAP to verify!!!

Why Taiwanese?
Is there even a casino in Taiwan? Why is it assumed that the people there can be good croupiers?
