How Nevada might benefit from Biden’s win

Organized labor

The politically powerful Culinary Workers Union Local 226, which represents thousands of casino workers in Nevada, came out hard for Biden in the general election. The union had more than 400 members working to get out the vote in Las Vegas and Reno.

Now, he’ll have to deliver for them.

Geoconda Argüello-Kline, the union’s secretary-treasurer, expects Biden will work on extending and increasing unemployment benefits for workers, among other issues.

“The country will have hope right now,” Argüello-Kline said. “We can see President-elect Biden really understands how to move the country in a different way economically, in a safe way with the pandemic, and unite people.”
