Wynn Touts Hiring Ex-Cons and more

Wynn Las Vegas' top human resources leader told a group of business leaders they should consider hiring nontraditional workers such as ex-prisoners and former welfare recipients.

"If you want to talk about diversity, it goes beyond skin color and national origin," Arte Nathan, chief human resources officer for Wynn Resorts, said during a luncheon of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.

Companies are not required by law to hire workers with criminal pasts, but he said hiring such workers is part of embracing the true meaning of diversity.

Nathan is also chair of the Nevada Workforce Investment Board, a group charged with funneling federal labor dollars to local service providers that train workers for jobs.

He said he has been involved with hiring ex-offenders since 1993; since then about 100 workers have been recruited from the Nevada Department of Corrections to work at the Mirage, Treasure Island, Bellagio and now Wynn Las Vegas.

[ By ex-offenders they mean people like: Tommy "The Hook" Caprezzi, Frankie "Two Fingers" Crispino, Sammy "The Hammer" Gannuscio and Michael "King of Pop" Jackson. - Ed ]
