There are 150 people now out of work after Jackson Rancheria Casino cut about 10 percent of its workforce.

Officials at the Amador County casino say the cutbacks come at the same time as a $100 million renovation.

Even though the casino will be adding new restaurants, slot machines and other amenities, they are still downsizing.

The casino laid off 115 employees back in 2009.
