Eh? So every other business in the City is run for the benefit of the people and a casino is run for the benefit of Evil Inc.?
I'm lost as to how a restaurant at a casino would take away jobs from a restaurant near a casino.
The drivel about evil is your reading of the situation. Facilities in a casino are subsidized by the proceeds generated by the casino. The ratio of gambling losers greatly exceeds winners, so the house always wins and wins big. The house can then subsidize the facilities to keep gamblers inside and to not venture out into the city. The city is merely a location, and not a beneficiary, for a casino.
