BP oil spill claims: casino workers denied, restaurant workers hitting lottery
While Mississippi Gulf Coast casino workers’ BP oil spill claims for lost wages are being denied, some New Orleans restaurant workers are hitting the lottery — despite the fact that many Big Easy restaurants didn’t suffer a devastating tourism blow like Mississippi businesses.
The Sun Herald reports that only three of hundreds of claims filed by casino employees have been paid by BP. The rest have been denied.
GCCF claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg said in many cases, casino employees have been unable to show economic damage caused by the April blowout of BP Deepwater Horizon oil well.
The New Orleans City Business reports that bartenders, waiters, cooks and dishwashers are receiving checks for as much as $25,000.
