ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - Job losses at Trump Plaza when the Atlantic City casino shuts down in September will be even worse than expected.
    
Trump Entertainment Resorts began mailing notices to its workers on Monday, informing them that while a final decision has not been reached, management expects to close the casino on Sept. 16.
    
The notice says 1,153 people will lose their jobs, up from estimates of just over 1,000 last week.
    
Trump Plaza has been the worst-performing of Atlantic City's 11 casinos, and is one of three casinos currently operating that could close before fall.
    
The Showboat is closing Aug. 31, and Revel says it will shut down if a buyer can't be found in bankruptcy court.
    
The Atlantic Club shut down in January.
