Mass layoffs across Las Vegas strip

Over 1000 Las Vegas workers will reportedly lose their jobs in December amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The cuts will impact around 1,100 workers across the Tropicana, Park Theater and MGM Grand Garden Arena venues. 

Both Park Theater and MGM Grand Garden Arena are tied to MGM Resorts properties, but the expected layoffs will not impact MGM employees, and will instead affect those at Aramark, a third-party vendor that operates at the two venues. 

Around 180 jobs are set to be cut at Park Theater, with 164 people expected to lose their jobs at MGM Grand Garden Arena. 

Tropicana meanwhile has already laid off 702 employees this month, and will continue by laying off an additional 132 employees in December. 

In a written notice, Tropicana assistant general manager Mike Thoma wrote: “Significant drags on our business will likely continue for the foreseeable future. 

“We could not have anticipated when our properties would be allowed to reopen and how restrictive the new operating conditions would be, and the negative impact this would have on business volumes.” 

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak closed casino properties in mid-March, reopening them at the beginning of May with a number of safety measures in place.
