A specialist school in Macau is churning out dealers for the world’s biggest gambling market, but not fast enough, as a rush of casino mega-projects strains the enclave's tight labor market.
At the heart of the world's hottest gambling market, Macau's Polytechnic Institute cranks out new recruits for the enclave's many casinos. Thousands of students come through the institute each year, hoping to make it to Macau's real gambling tables.
Apparently for young locals gaming is the best industry to be in. Demand for dealers is rising with more multibillion dollar casino projects coming online, while restrictions on hiring foreigners mean practically any local who wants a job in gaming, gets one. As the gaming industry sucks up much of Macau's talent, there are fewer workers for other essential positions.
