I was a little confused about this one, as Channel 7 also mentions "Eighty persons are jobless tonight after they were fired from the Princess Hotel and Casino in Belize City": http://www.7newsbelize.com/archive/08040603.html
Thought they were talking about the same 80 persons, but Channel 5 gave me the answer:
The article that Marty quotes on August 2: http://www.channel5belize.com/archive_detail_story.php?story_id=16748
And then the Belize City Princess employees on August 4: http://www.channel5belize.com/archive_detail_story.php?story_id=16766
So it's a total of 180 employees....
I'll quote that last article below here:
Princess hotel lays-off 100 workers in Belize City
On Wednesday, the Princess Hotel and Casino Belize announced it was cutting eight-one jobs at the Corozal Free Zone, but tonight the company says it has also decided to lay-off a hundred workers from its operations in the old capital. The break down is fifty workers from the casino and fifty others from the hotel. As in its previous release, the company cites a dramatic increase in cost of doing business, casino license fees and business tax. The restructuring will also include new opening hours at the casino which will now operate between twelve noon and four a.m. every day.
