1940 - The Germans made the jews wear different uniforms with big yellow stars.

2008 - Imported labor working in Macao's casinos will soon be required to wear different uniforms or badges, which will distinguish them from local ones.

I read about this yesterday and couldn't really make heads or tails of it. I hope it is solved with a simple name tag kind of like what the dealers wear in Vegas.

"Bob - Ohio"

I wonder exactly what the reasoning behind it is... giving Macau locals a bit of respect and pride? Very weird law.

What it comes down to is that the locals who average about 1 years casino experience think it is their right to have any job they want regardless if they are experience or not.
Macau is a very racist place to live and work and it will only be a few more years before the government pushes out all expat workers.It has already started at Galaxy.
All casinos have name badges already, what they are after is badges that say you are foreigner then if the locals see you doing a job which they think a Macanese should be doing then they can report you to the government.
Just wait, a few years and when the expats have gone, all casinos will be of the standard of the Lisboa.

Ain't gonna happen. Hell can't happen. There is no way the the population of Macau can support all those tourists without either Mainlanders, or SE Asian migrants comming in. And I actualy wonder if its the former more than the later. In both SAR's they are a bit leery of mainlanders taking jobs and communiting back and forth. They've had Phillipinos, Indonesians, etc. working there for a while.

so according to OP, china is about to commit financial/diplomatic suicide in order to kill a bunch of foreigners?
