California casino betting on laundry to impact those with disabilities


THE CASINO WITH WHY SOME
EMPLOYEES ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR A
CHANCE TO DO, OF ALL THINGS,
LAUNDRY. MIKE: YOU HEARD CORRECTLY. WHEN YOU THINK OF LOSING MONEY
AT THE CASINO, YOU MIGHT THINK
OF THE OLD PHRASE “GETTING TAKEN
TO THE CLEANERS.” THUNDER VALLEY
HAS GIVEN NEW MEANING TO THE
PHRASE IN A POSITIVE WAY. THUNDER VALLEY RECENTLY
INSTALLED ITS OWN 6000 SQUARE
FOOT IN-HOUSE LAUNDRY FACILITY,
WHICH CAN HANDLE UP TO 10,000
POUNDS OF LAUNDRY A DAY. PREVIOUSLY, THE CASINO HAD TO
TRACK ALL OF THEIR LAUNDRY TO A
FACILITY IN NAPA, AND TRACK IT
ALL THE WAY BACK WHEN IT WAS
CLAIM. THE TRUE PAYOFF IS NOT THE
SWITCH. IT IS WHO IS GETTING JOBS
BECAUSE OF THE SWITCH. THUNDER VALLEY SAID IT IS SO
IMPRESSED WITH THE WORK OF PRIDE
INDUSTRIES HERE THAT THEY HIGH
ALERT — THEY HIRED 30 PEOPLE
WITH DISABILITIES TO FILL THOSE
LAUNDRY JOBS. THOSE EMPLOYEES TOLD ME THEY
COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED AND
THANKFUL TO DO THE LAUNDRY. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS JOB?>>PRETTY COOL. MIKE: HOW IMPORTANT IT — IS IT
TO YOU TO SHOW PEOPLE YOU CAN DO
A REAL JOB? ANTHONY: THAT WAY, PEOPLE HAVE
CONFIDENCE IN US AND CAN HIRE
US. MIKE: HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU
FEEL? ANTHONY: GREAT. MIKE: YOU LIKELY WILL NEVER GET
A CHANCE TO SEE THIS LAUNDRY
FACILITY, AS IT IS HIDDEN DEEP
BEHIND THE GLITZ, GLAMOUR, AND
FLASHING LIGHTS OF THE CASINO
FLOOR. KEEP IN MIND THAT IF YOU COME TO
THE CASINO, AS YOU ARE TRYING TO
NOT GET TAKEN TO THE CLEANERS,
THERE IS SEVERAL DOZEN EMPLOYEES
HAPPY TO BE A PART OF THE
CLEANERS OUT HERE AT
