Las Vegas Casino Workers Down

Casinos in Las Vegas recently released reports indicating that the number of full-time employees at each property has dropped, while part-time numbers have increased. MGM Mirage saw its full-time staff drop from 54,700 workers in 2007 to 46,000 in 2008. Its number of part-time employees rose from 12,700 in 2007 to 15,000 in 2008. The reports seem to show that properties are reducing hours rather than laying off employees, thus the shift from full-time workers to part-time employees.
