Geoconda Arguello-Kline, secretary-treasurer for the Culinary Union, said Wednesday that the union, which represents about 55,000 workers in Nevada, supports raising the minimum wage.
“But, it’s just the start,” Arguello-Kline said. “To really change working people’s lives, they need a union to secure fair wages, job security, a pension and good health benefits. When workers do well our community benefits.”
The average Culinary Union member on the Las Vegas Strip makes about $23 an hour, including benefits.
