Nevada posts record employment numbers from June

However, the leisure and hospitality sector is still looking to recover 33,800 jobs from its peak in February 2020. In particular, the hotel and casino subsector is only at 80 percent of its peak, Schmidt said.

Culinary Local 226 said there are still about 10,000 union members who were laid off during the pandemic who have not been called back to work.

Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for the Culinary union, said contracts for 50,000 workers expire next June, and “we need to start getting ready right now!”

Nevada’s unemployment rate fell, but remains one of the worst in the country.
