Casino Helps Relocated Workers
As reported by the Arizona Central: "Russell Green's wife gave him a hard time when he whipped out a video camera recently to capture his youngest daughter's first day of kindergarten. All the parents were doing it. "The excitement Green felt that day was a far cry from his anxiety a year ago, when Hurricane Katrina drained his bank account, separated him from one of his daughters and sent his family hopscotching their way to Arizona from Louisiana. ".Green, a sous chef, found work at Harrah's Ak-Chin Casino in Maricopa, which reached out to several families displaced by the disaster. A couple of people have returned to New Orleans, but about 20 have stayed, Harrah's spokeswoman Susan Baker said. "He said he hopes improvements will come soon for people living outside of the French Quarter. ".Cheryl Bernard agrees. One of Green's co-workers at Harrah's, Bernard visited New Orleans in February and has no desire to go back. ".Even though she is without her close-knit family, Bernard said she is happy here. She calls Arizona home."
