Looking for a change, Jameel Milligan, age 36, moved from Philadelphia, where he worked in the chemical industry, to Las Vegas. He was certain he’d have no problem finding a job at one of the many resorts.
“I wanted to start over and I thought since there are so many different types of jobs at all the casinos, I’d have no problem finding something,” he said. “I didn’t realize that you need various licenses and permits in order to do certain jobs within the casinos. I came here with no plan, just on a whim.”
