Judy Resendes of Brockton has had better years at Raynham Park.

She is among the 209 track employees who have jobs but lost two-thirds of their co-workers since live greyhound racing ended in December.

They have seen one another’s hours and paychecks reduced, and they narrowly avoided the shutdown of simulcast racing in July.

They watched nervously the gaming debate on Beacon Hill, hoping that slot machines would come to Raynham Park, bringing jobs and a $75 million investment in the track.

But now, those expansion plans are on hold with the gaming bill in limbo.
