The pro-casino group New York Jobs Now received a flurry of last-minute contributions on Thursday, five days before voters are set to decide on a Constitutional amendment that would expand non-Indian casinos in the state.

The contributions range from labor organizations, such as Hotel Workers For A Stronger Middle Class, which contributed $270,000 and a labor group for carpenters, which donated $75,000 for the effort.

Gaming company Genting New York also kicked in an additional $250,000 on top of the $500,000 it previously contributed to the group.

New York Jobs now is not a traditional political action committee in part because it is funding an effor to promote a constitutional amendment. As such, its contributions do not have a cap.

All told, Thursday’s donations amounted to $675,000 as New York Jobs Now is exceeding the $2 million it had expected to raise for the effort.

The contributions from labor come only three days after the Hotel Trades Council struck an agreement with Resorts World New York in Queens that will great increase the minimum pay for workers in the short and near term following a ruling by an independent arbitrator.

The agreement has been cast as a model for gaming companies statewide.

In an interview on Capital Tonight this week, Hotel Trades Council Political Director Josh Gold told me the organizaiton is urging its members to support the ballot amendment.

The move would dovetail with the AFL-CIO conducting its own internal member-to-member effort backing the casino amendment.
