Threat of strike looms for Virgin Hotels Las Vegas

The hold-up affects workers, as several said they’re already juggling multiple jobs to keep up with Las Vegas inflation. Pamela Holmes, a lead usher at the casino’s entertainment department, says she has three jobs.

“I do hair, I take care of my mom full time, and I work here full time,” Holmes said. “My mom doesn’t have any money coming in, and I’m the sole supporter of my family.”


Jovani Guerrero Lopez, a kitchen steward for the hotel, said they’re prepared to pack up.

“If you don’t have workers, your whole place is going to topple down,” Guerrero Lopez said while holding a sign reading ‘No justice, no peace’ on the front. “We don’t need to dig in the 
dirt just to have those common necessities.”
