Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal Casino Closes

October 10, 2016

The Trump Taj Mahal casino has closed, becoming the fifth Atlantic City casino to go out of business since 2014.

The Oct. 10 closing comes after billionaire owner Carl Icahn failed to reach a deal with union workers to restore health care and pension benefits that were taken away from the workers in bankruptcy court.

The union went on strike July 1, and Icahn decided to shut the place down, determining there was “no path to profitability.”

Nearly 3,000 Taj workers are losing their jobs, bringing the total jobs lost by Atlantic City casino closings to 11,000 since 2014.

Donald Trump opened his Trump Taj Mahal casino 26 years ago, calling the sprawling property with its soaring domes, minarets and towers “the eighth wonder of the world.”
