LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The unemployment rate in the Silver State is improving to 13.2% in the month of August, according to a recent report from the Nevada Department of Employment. Training and Rehabilitation.

Unemployment claims are also down, and more than 6,000 jobs have been added in August, specifically in trade and utility industries.

But for some agencies who have recently lost employees to retirement or a new career, finding qualified applicants continues to be a challenge.

For the fourth straight month, Nevada’s job market is chipping away at one of the highest unemployment rates across the country.

Las Vegas's mayor has been infamously aggressive about reopening even as the pandemic was raging out of control. Yet, despite many Vegas attractions and hotels opening, a lot of people are staying away. Republicans like to push the idea that you have to choose between fighting the pandemic versus economic growth. However, as Biden/Harris have explained, this is a false choice. I am not about head on down to Fremont Street to walk shoulder to shoulder with thousands of people while the pandemic is still going on. Some will, but many will not.

2. I live in Las Vegas and do not believe those numbers

The real unemployment rate should be over 25%. Less than 20% of the casino and hotel space is open for business. One in four workers now living in Las Vegas will likely live in another state by next year. Virtually all convention reservations are already cancelled through next Summer. Sinclair networks and others invested in corporate profits might want you to think things are going back to normal, but they are not.

Two consecutive stories in LBN telling us that unemployment is falling. I have little doubt who's pushing this narrative nationally.
