The Atlantic City Council recently repealed a temporary ban on smoking in the city’s casinos, citing an ailing economy. Not all casino workers are in favor of the change.
Arthur Kaler, a veteran dealer at Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, made a plea for his ailing lungs, the Associated Press reported.
“If we are here next year to revisit the smoking ban and I have fallen victim to lung cancer, will each of you look my family in the eye?” Kaler asked at a city council meeting. “Tell them how brave I was to fight secondhand smoke every day to save the economy of New Jersey. A ballpark or street could be dedicated in my honor, and my family can be bestowed a plaque.”
