Francis Tam: Sands will not “act in a tricky way”


Secretary for Economy and Finance Francis Tam Pak Yuen said yesterday that he had noted the demonstration organised by gaming workers to improve their wages and benefits the day before. He said that he believes that the gaming corporations will maintain or improve their benefits for staff, given the competition for human resources.
He thinks that the company will not “act in a tricky way” since once the competitive ability of one gaming enterprise declines, its human resources will also decline, which will affect the business itself. Hence, all of the six corporations should have known how to improve their benefits systems to develop their business.
He also said that the Labour Affairs Bureau is currently dealing with complaints by gaming staff. The government, if necessary, will play a role in coordinating the issue.
