Building a Sandcastle: A Broken Promise to Atlantic City tells the stories of the casino workers who remain after the wave of casino closures and layoffs in 2014. Now employed by an industry looking to secure its bottom line by cutting pensions, healthcare and work hours, casino employees are getting organized and fighting back. In the process they are working with neighbors across Atlantic City to reimagine the future of this resort town on the Jersey coast. Look for more stories from NJ as MMP works with communities throughout the state to build independent media and create new ties to journalists as a part of a new collaboration with Dodge Foundation, Free Press, Rutgers University and others.
