Las Vegas in Spain! Watch the jobs roll in!
Casino company Las Vegas Sands Corp. is picking Madrid over Barcelona for a big Spain casino project dubbed "EuroVegas."

It's expected to take about 10 years to build six casinos, 12 hotels, a convention center, three golf courses, shopping centers, bars and restaurants.

The company plans to put up several billion dollars, but no more than about a third of the equity for the development.

C'mon all of you underemployed...you can go get a low paying construction job in Madrid now!! And when it's all finished we can set you up as a prostitute, drug dealer, or card dealer!!!

no, the economic situation in Spain is perfect for them, and the labor force is ripe for exploitation. All you young ones who can't find a job? 53% 18-25 yr old unemployment...get your asses to Madrid and get a construction job...sure the pay is shit but you have to do something! You girls, go to work making sammiches for these boys!

Really, 10 years to finish this thing? I can't even imagine the world in 10 years. They must know something we don't.

Definetely no shame in construction work. I too have done my share. Construction work used to be a great business in this country. So good that for the last 20 years since Spain experienced it's "construction boom" of development, many people opted for jobs in construction because it was fast money, alot faster than stuydying at the uni for 4 years and then starting at some company from scratch. And there was alot of money to be made in construction. That bubble popped. Now the country is full of people who are ex-construction workers without any options. The lesson of going for the fast money.

My point isn't in the construction work itself, but the exploitation. I have a feeling these jobs won't pay anywhere near what people were used to making in construction. I could be wrong.

Re: Las Vegas in Spain! Watch the jobs roll in!
they are saying that it will be half the size of the Las Vegas strip, creating up to 260,000 jobs with a possible inauguration in 2016 and construction ongoing for 5 or 6 more years.

Honestly I don't see it as a bad option for people who need work.

People here are worried though if it is worth it. Kind of like selling your soul. Figure in all of the corruption, prostitution, crime rate, gambling problems (for families who live nearby) mafias, etc that a project like this brings and people are asking if this is the solution they really want.

Yes, I know of the Indian Casinos. But, we're not talking about a casino out on some reservation. We are talking about EuroVegas. Las Vegas Sands and Sheldon Adelson investing 17 Billion (only one third of the cost) and building the equivalent of half of the Las Vegas strip that will bring an expected 11 million tourists in 15 years spending an estimated 15.5 Billion Euros. They expect to create 260,000 jobs.

Not quite the same as an "Indian Casino" is it?

Re: Las Vegas in Spain! Watch the jobs roll in!
This will work up to a point..
Until everyone else in europe starts jumping on the band wagon opening casinos everywhere..


Miami Fl.. South Beach - Major Companies, both casino owners and contractors are preparing now for Bigtime Las Vegas style Casino Gaming all Over Florida. We are Not talking about Casino's on a reservation but on the Beach, and in Orlando.

Eventually if enough states open up to Gaming it will impact Vegas.. who already sufffers from high unemployement and lots and lots low paying jobs..


What does this really create in the end ....

Barcelona would obviously be the better choice because of climate, location on the mediterranean, etc. But because the government and hence the corruption are centered in Madrid, and they need more funding to finish the project Madrid gets the casinos! Of course they are in bed together...alot of politicians in Madrid will get crazy rich from this. Or at least they think they will.
