CLEVELAND (AP) -- State records show that nearly one out of every three workers at two of Ohio's casinos have either quit or been fired.
Overall, the turnover rate at the state's four casinos is about 18 percent.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that Hollywood Casino in Toledo has a 35 percent turnover rate, while Hollywood Casino in Columbus shows a 30 percent turnover in employees.
Both of those casinos are operated by Penn National Gaming.
A company spokesman says the turnover rate isn't unusual, especially in areas where casino gambling is new. He says employees drawn by the excitement surrounding the casino may have a hard time adjusting to night and weekend hours and the atmosphere inside.
Ohio's first two casinos opened in May 2012.
