Nevadans’ real wages have decreased since the Great Recession

Geoconda Arguello-Kline, secretary-treasurer of the Culinary Union, said that state leaders could better support unions, which lift wages for all workers, unionized or not. Most of the service industry workers employed by non-union hotel-casinos—properties owned by Station Casinos and the Las Vegas Sands Company—are making well above minimum wage because those employers have to compete with unionized jobs on the Strip, she said. (She pointed out that unionized jobs deliver other benefits, though, such as job security.)
