It is the second Bruce-related post of the week. But, hey, it’s New Jersey.
Today, Chris Christie publicly called on the Boss to play the new Revel casino in Atlantic City.
“I think Bruce, if he’s true to his lyrics, would love the fact that the state used taxpayer funds to invest in this place to create jobs for working men and women,” Christie said.
Let’s look at what kind of jobs we paid to create.
Revel’s jobs are in many cases part-time and non-union, in contrast to the union jobs with good benefits at other casinos.
And they are “term contracts” which appear to be designed to discriminate based on age and to find ways to demote women not considered attractive enough.
That’s Chris Christie’s kind of workplace. But it’s not one that reflects Bruce Springsteen’s values, or New Jersey’s. So Bruce, come on back to AC – but play somewhere else.
