This will mean a reduction in the number of employees at the business, with average salary costs to also be cut.While Casinos Austria did not provide an indication as to how many staff may be laid off, Austrian newspaper Kurier claims up to 500 employees will lose their jobs.The casino estate will undergo a “strategic reorientation” which will give each property greater autonomy, as well as creating a “lean, independent” head office structure.Glatz-Kremsner explained that the business had been badly hit by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which shuttered the venues from 16 March. The properties reopened their doors to customers from 29 May.“Like many other companies, Casinos Austria was massively affected by the coronavirus crisis, which made it necessary for the management, supervisory board and owners to act quickly and responsibly; particularly because the expected consequences of Covid-19 will also present us with great difficulties in the near future,” she said.“But even before the coronavirus crisis, there was a clear need for action due to changing conditions in our casinos and also at our headquarters, not least because of the smoking ban.”Austria banned smoking in public places from 1 November last year.The plan is supported by Casinos Austria’s majority shareholder Sazka Group, which completed a deal to take its stake in the operator to 55.48% in June this year. It jointly manages the business alongside the Austrian state’s investment arm, Österreichische Beteiligungs (ÖBAG), through an agreement struck in March.“It’s not about politics or the nationality of the shareholders, and it’s not about maximising profits,” Sazka chief executive Robert Chvatal said. “Restructuring is about avoiding future losses. It’s about rescuing a company that finds itself in an extraordinarily difficult situation due to its structure and a changing world.“We do not want to sell casinos, but we want to make them fit for the future,” he continued. “We support the ReFIT recommendation from the team of experts led by Bettina Glatz-Kremsner, who worked hard on this plan for several weeks.”Chvatal described the plan as being based on “facts, figures and great judgement”, and said it would save 1,200 jobs across the business.ÖBAG board member Thomas Schmid added that his company had been particularly focused on preserving as many jobs as possible, and keeping all 12 casinos open for business.“Management has assured us that in view of the major challenges facing [Casinos Austria, the restructuring of the company is essential,” he explained. “Only by implementing the proposed measures can the company remain successful.“Casinos Austria is an important company in ÖBAG’s portfolio, and as a major tourism leader and taxpayer, the company makes a significant contribution to Austria as a business location. The long-term increase in the value of the investment – as well as player protection – are central cornerstones of a successful corporate strategy for Casinos Austria.”With the ReFIT plan approved by the supervisory board, efforts to implement its terms are now underway. This will see internal project and working groups formed to fulfil this, and tasked with exploring further opportunities for additional efficiencies and savings.Discussions will also begin with employee representatives over potential layoffs.“It is important to us to implement the planned measures in a socially acceptable manner and with the involvement of the works council,” Schmid said.Glatz-Kremsner admitted that the coming weeks would be “challenging and difficult”.“However, if the present concept is successfully implemented, not only will the company be stronger and more successful than it has ever been, but the outstanding position of Casinos Austria and the jobs associated with it will also be secured,” she said.“The employees are doing an excellent job and have always proved in the past that they are prepared to act for the good of the company.” The supervisory board of Casinos Austria has approved a proposal from the business’ management team for a far-reaching restructuring plan through which it aims to reduce costs by more than €40m, but which will see its employee headcount significantly reduced.

Enter Your Email Address Is the stock market crash finally over? I’d buy this FTSE 250 dividend stock anyway Investor appetite for riskier assets has received a shot in the arm in recent days. For the moment the recent stock market crash is but a memory. The FTSE 100 climbed to two-week highs at the end of this shortened week and FTSE 250 stocks followed them higher. Britain’s second-tier index was actually trading close to one-month highs.Signs of slowing Covid-19 infection rates have caused share investors to break out their cheque books en masse. It still pays to be prepared, of course, given the fluid nature of the coronavirus tragedy. Any signs of fresh trouble could drive global share indices through the floor again.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Giant dividend yieldsIt makes sense for share investors to keep protecting themselves with some wise stock buys then. Tritax Big Box (LSE: BBOX) is one great safe haven to buy despite increasing coronavirus infections in the UK, I feel.I’d argue that this FTSE 250 stock looks too good to miss at current prices. It carries a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 18.2 times, way below its historical norms around the mid-20s mark. What’s more, Tritax carries monster dividend yields of 5.5% and 5.8% for 2020 and 2021.I admit that big dividend yields are ten-a-penny following this most recent share market crash. With the Covid-19 crisis set to persist for months yet, and the global economy set for a painful and prolonged recession, a great many of these look like classic investor traps. But Tritax Big Box is not a share that falls into this category.Rental resilienceThe FTSE 250 share — which provides so-called big box logistics and warehousing spaces — underlined its robustness in fresh financials on Wednesday.Tritax isn’t totally immune from the economic consequences of the coronavirus crisis. Few companies are. It said this week that some of its clients are experiencing “unprecedented disruption” because of the government-imposed lockdown. This has had an “immediate impact on their near-term cash flows,” the property play added. Amd that it is talking with customers about how to get through the pandemic.Despite these troubles, however, Tritax said that it still expects to collect 96% of rents by the end of May. These are in respect of advanced quarterly rental payments that were due by April 1.Don’t fear another stock market crashThere are two major reasons why Tritax continues to operate resolutely. Firstly, a large number of blue-chip clients use its network of nearly 60 big boxes, companies that are more financially robust to withstand times of crisis like these. Indeed, its top five customers by income — Amazon, Tesco, Morrisons, Co-op and Howdens — account for more than a third of total income.Secondly, as this list shows, a vast amount of Tritax’s rents are sourced from firms in currently-defensive sectors like e-commerce, food retail and third-party logistics like postal couriers. No wonder the business vowed to continue paying quarterly dividends and eyed a full-year target of 7p per share for 2020.I consider Tritax, with its high-quality customer base and rock-solid balance sheet, to be a brilliant buy in these troubled times. I’d be very happy to buy it today, even though another stock market crash could be around the corner. I think it’s too cheap for long-term investors to miss.

First of all, our nation is already in debt. Federal tax dollars will support the refugees and even if the local president of the organization trying to bring them here doesn’t think there is any money involved, it is our tax dollars. Second, their culture doesn’t meld with ours. Some believe in Sharia law which is an enemy of our constitution. We have limited social services already and can’t take care of West Virginians who are American citizens much less foreigners. We already have 83,000,000 people in this country who were not born here. Enough is enough. The church organizations, who want to help people in other countries, should help them in their home countries, not here! One reason 67% of West Virginian voters voted for Trump is exactly because we didn’t want Middle Eastern refugees in our country. Where ever they go their is violence and death. I wish the group that is promoting bringing refugees into out country and state would care about the people still living in tents due to the flood as much as they do some foreigners. People that always want to dump needy people into our country make me sick. I pray that Trump is able to stop all immigration into this country. Our water and our food are in limited supply. Our national debt is horrendous. Keep the refugees out of West Virginia!

Photo: Victor Urecki/Facebook[Episcopal News Service] An interfaith coalition of Christians, Muslims and Jews rallied in peaceful, prayerful solidarity in support of welcoming Syrian refugees and refugee resettlement in Charleston, West Virginia, on Nov. 15.“We believe [in], and we also want to encourage, the sense of welcome,” said West Virginia Assistant Bishop Mark Van Koevering, who attended the rally in Charleston. “It’s part of our Christian response to provide hospitality to the stranger. And the evidence suggests [that] where immigrants come into a community, it’s a win-win – they bring in skills and invigorate the dream about what America could be.“We’ve all come from somewhere, and it’s important to distinguish between an immigrant and a refugee. These are people being forced from their homes and in dire straits.”Hundreds of supporters joined the rally, which also attracted a dozen opponents, said Van Koevering, who recognized the opponents’ concerns about safety and the availability of resources to address other “big issues” in the state.Refugee resettlement “is not an either/or,” however, he said. Floods killed more than 20 people and displaced more than a thousand in the state earlier this year, drug abuse is an epidemic problem, and the state has an aging population; problems the interfaith community also is trying to address.Some of the speakers at the rally, including Rabbi Victor Urecki, of B’nai Jacob Synagogue, were refugees themselves.“The rabbi gave his own story of being a child carried over from Europe and how much that dream of the U.S. has meant and the importance of keeping up that tradition of being a place of welcome,” said Van Koevering.For more than a year, West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry has been working with Episcopal Migration Ministries to become a resettlement affiliate, with the Diocese of West Virginia as its fiduciary. In October 2015, a panel discussion on the current refugee crisis at St. John’s Episcopal Church was attended by 150 people and led to the formation of West Virginia Interfaith Ministry.The Interfaith Refugee Ministry includes clergy and lay member volunteers from St. George Orthodox Cathedral, the local Islamic Association, Catholic Charities, which currently resettles refugees in Charleston, St. John’s Episcopal Church and others. Since the ministry’s inception, volunteers have met with state political leaders to advocate refugee resettlement in Charleston. (Click here for 10 facts about the U.S. refugee resettlement program; and here where three myths about the program are dispelled.)“The efforts and skills that we have seen from the grass-roots volunteers at West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry as they work to welcome refugees into their community are truly remarkable,” said the Rev. Mark Stevenson, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries. “Episcopal Migration Ministries considers it a gift to our ministry to be partnering with them to bring the victims of persecution to safety. They are demonstrating the welcoming nature of West Virginia to the country, and to the world.”Just as West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry is trying to get off the ground, the very existence of the U.S.- resettlement program hangs in the balance. President-elect Donald J. Trump and others in the Republican Party have indicated that refugees are no longer welcome, particularly Syrians and other refugees who come from countries beset by terrorist activity.In West Virginia, the all-volunteer interfaith ministry has been working to build community unity in the wake of last week’s presidential election and a contentious election season.“There has been some ugliness in the election and a lot of our members and volunteers are taking a strong stand for unity, tolerance and inclusiveness and love for one’s neighbor,” said Lynn Clarke, West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry’s volunteer president and a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charleston.Episcopal Migration Ministries submitted West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry’s application to become a resettlement affiliate to the U.S. State Department in October.Episcopal Migration Ministries is one of nine agencies – more than half of them faith-based – that work in partnership with the State Department to welcome and resettle refugees. Its staff works with 30 resettlement affiliates in 26 dioceses and 22 states, providing direct assistance to recent arrivals. It also offers ways for congregations to engage in refugee resettlement in their communities and encourages Episcopalians to join the Episcopal Public Policy Network and advocate for policies that protect the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. Click here for the EPPN’s post-election resources for refugee and immigration advocacy.Of the 21.3 million refugees in the world today, 1 percent might be resettled. In 2017, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 1.19 million refugees will need to be resettled. A disproportionate number of refugees, 53 percent, are fleeing Somalia, Afghanistan and Syria, where more than four years of civil war has led to the death of more than 250,000 people and the displacement of 11 million.“The interfaith efforts to welcome refugees to Charleston, West Virginia, is just one example of how communities across the United States are actively and vocally engaged in the work of resettlement,” said Lacy Broemel, the Episcopal Church’s refugee and immigration policy analyst based in Washington, D.C. “Communities have seen how refugees benefit their neighborhoods, schools, and local economy and are speaking out to share those experiences. Especially in the light of the global refugee crisis, the Episcopal Church is committed to continuing to welcome refugees and continuing our nation’s longstanding tradition of refugee resettlement under the next administration.”The majority of Syrians continue to live in nearby Jordan, but many have been welcomed to Europe. The Obama administration pledged to welcome at least 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States in fiscal year 2016, which ended Sept. 30. The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported that five Syrian refugees were resettled to West Virginia.If the current numbers hold, next year up to 110,000 refugees could be resettled to the United States.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Frankly, unvetted refugees have overwhelmed pockets of Europe and violence has spiked as well as unreasonable expectations that European cultures subordinate to Muslim social standards. There are documented “No Go” zones in cities that Muslims insist on policing with Sharia Law. We should expect the oil-rich Muslim nations to create safe zones that we support with them…underline WITH them. Our own neglected citizens demand our attention.

The Petitioner, Advocate Reepak Kansal has approached the court stating that it is “illegal” for the schools to demand fee and expenses, without rending service. It is stated that there is no Force Majeure clause in the school admission forms (contract) and the school is bound with terms and conditions which are mentioned in the admission form. “There is no Force Majeure clause in the said admission form, therefore, demanding fee and expenses without rending service is illegal and against the principle of natural justice,” the Petitioner has contended in light of the Consumer Protection Act. So far as online classes is concerned, the Petitioner through Advocate Vatsalya Vigya, states that the same is not mentioned in the admission form and is beyond the “scope of schooling”. “There is no clause in the admission form that in case of epidemic / adverse situation / nation lock down etc., the school administration would provide online classes and charge same set of fee & expenses for the same. There are several side effects and demerits of online classes which is totally different from the concept of schooling,” the plea states. For students who have given prior consent and attended online classes, the Petitioner states, the parents may be charged for the expenses of the said online classes “proportionally”. In this backdrop, the Petitioner has urged the court to give an interpretation of the Force Majeure clauses in the current circumstances and also to direct the Government to take decision in regard to waiving off/ providing uniform maximum relief I the school fees. “The authorities/ respondent have been illegal forcing the students / parents to pay the school fee without getting services from their respective schools which violates the fundamental rights as well as various sections of Consumer Protection Act,” the Petitioner has submitted.
