Slow economy puts pressure on Oneida Tribe and casinos

Link to January 3 Green Bay Press Gazette article.
Excerpt:
Tough economic times are trickling down to the Oneida Tribe of Indians.

Fewer people are spending money at Oneida Bingo & Casino and more members of the tribe are looking for financial help.
While the casino in Ashwaubenon, a huge part of the tribe's financial success, isn't facing the same type of slowdown that has forced massive layoffs in the gaming industry in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, its numbers are down, general manager Neil Cornelius said.
