More Trouble at Tropicana
By Earl
The Press of Atlantic City reports that 120 supervisors and managers at the luxury Tropicana Casino and Resort have lost their jobs, and a further 40 supervisors or managers have been demoted or transferred within the company in order to effectively implement an new system of management.

“All 160 affected employees were supervisors or managers in every department of the casino hotel,” Tropicana spokeswoman Maureen Siman said. Just over a week ago a first wave of layoffs came when 140 employees at two Tropicana restaurants being remodelled were let go. Tropicana has now laid off about 5% of its workforce.

Siman described the new management system as a “... non-traditional concept of management ... [that] involves reducing the levels of bureaucracy that employees face; it involves blurring the lines of what you would call standard or traditional organizational structures, and it involves empowering employees to act and think as individual members of a team ... The job cuts are unrelated to Tropicana's financial performance or its $225 million expansion, which remains on budget and on time.”

Translation: decisions will now be made by those who will not be paid to make them.
