UNITE HERE’s leader: Gaming should answer to state for layoffs

“I think we have to raise a really serious question to the Nevada Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission,” Taylor told the Current Tuesday. “It’s a privileged license. They promised to have good-paying, secure jobs. When those go away, why doesn’t that license come into question?” Taylor asked.

“Jobs are going to evolve.  I get that. But what we’re vehemently opposed to is this ‘slash and burn’ for the benefit of Wall Street and not for the benefit of Main Street,” Taylor said.  “Clearly, in this country you’ve had these vultures come in and destroy companies. It has an effect on the town, the community and the industry. I think we have to be the voice that speaks out.”
