Palms Casino owner George Malouf was challenged to a charity boxing match by a former employee of his back when Malouf owned a much smaller casino known as Fiesta.
The former casino dealer is Samuel Michael Schildkraut. When asked why he challenged Malouf, Schildkraut stated, "I've spent a dozen years dealing all casino games, and my biggest problem has always been the way casino dealers are treated, not just by management but by one another.
"When I worked for Malouf, it was about the only time I stood up for management until things changed and the favorites ran the show. Eventually I was physically and verbally harassed by supervisors.
"The night after I reported a supervisor to Fiesta security for shoving me, I was suddenly suspended and would later challenge the suspension where it became a kangeroo court in which every time I brought strong evidence I was shouted down by the General Manager named Ed Fasulo.
"There were no witnesses to verify the alleged customer complaint for which I received the suspension, not even a supervisor to claim that any customer made any complaint what so ever. As to the way customers felt towards me, I can say that I had customers calling Fiesta's Human Resources to complain of witnessing the harassment I suffered in their view by my supervisors; and HR told me they didn't like customers calling to complain in my favor and I suggested that I could give them those customer phone numbers so that they could tell them to stop calling and the HR director stood like a lump of (spit) and was speechless.
"After this runaround I sent a return receipt letter to George Malouf who in his cowardly way did nothing.
"Years later I contacted Malouf's office and his secretary, we'll call her The Queen Witch, hung up on me and I then received a phone call from Palm's Security telling me not to set foot on Palm's property. So eventually, when Malouf wasn't man enough to talk to me, even over the phone, and had his security do his dirty work, like some ho trying to get away with everything by having the pimp do the talking, I challenged Malouf to a charity boxing match and he wasn't man enough to reply."
Schildkraut has reported some of the casinos that he worked for for cheating and stealing and illegal drug use and because he wouldn't be a part of it, Schildkraut has been basically blackballed from the casino industry and often states, "They'd hire a thief, an ex-con, a drug dealer over someone like me because they can trust me and know I'd report wrongdoings.".
Schildkraut was displaced by Hurricane Katrina but still maintains, from a distance, a cable television show titled "Confessions Of A Chronic Complainer" in New Orleans where he makes his complaints and rarely hears from others with complaints of their own. One of his guest stars on the show was John Walsh of "America's Most Wanted.".
