The Covid-19 pandemic is continuing to cause mayhem in Las Vegas, as gaming giant Boyd Gaming announced that they are going to be laying off 284 employees permanently at their Downtown Las Vegas properties.
The company will lay off 168 workers at the California Hotel and Casino, and 116 workers at Main Street Station, effective November 13th. The company previously furloughed most of their workforce, as casinos and hotels were ordered to close earlier this year.
Boyd reported the layoffs to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.
Gambling as a whole has nosedived throughout Nevada, as visitors to the Silver State have been down severely due to the pandemic. Recently the state reported the worst gambling numbers since 2003 when reports began.
The thoughts of the CL news team are with those affected by the layoffs.
