The strike, involving 3 thousand seven hundred employees across different job roles, has led to the closure of several services at the casinos.
The workers’ contract, which offered a 3 percent wage increase despite a 20 percent surge in the cost of living, has expired. Meanwhile, the casinos’ gaming revenues have exceeded pre-pandemic levels, creating a stark contrast between the workers’ income and the industry’s profits.
The strike is estimated to risk around 738 thousand dollars in city and state tax revenues and 3.4 million dollars in casino operator revenues each day. Other casino workers in Las Vegas are also contemplating a strike, creating a significant impact on the industry nationwide.
