Nevada Employment Improving

The economic bounceback from the pandemic has been hampered by the reluctance of people to return to their previous jobs. That was particularly evident in the hospitality and retail industries, but things are improving. According to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation’s (DETR) January 2023 economic report, the total number of jobs in Nevada has surpassed 1.5 million. Las Vegas employment increased by 4,000 jobs (0.4 percent) since December and saw an increase of 62,600 jobs (6 percent) since January 2022. Reno employment had an increase of 800 jobs (0.3 percent) since December, and an increase of 11,900 jobs (4.6 percent) since January 2022. Nevada’s jobless rate still exceeds the national number.
