In the second quarter of 2015, the gaming sector in Macau had a total of 58,123 workers – of which 57,422 were full-time employees – according to a quarterly survey by the city’s Statistics and Census Service.
In comparison, by the end of September, there were a total of 29,367 public servants, show figures from the Public Administration and Civil Service Bureau.
