Friday, March 4th, 2005

MS Las Vegas Real Estate will keep you posted.

Gaming Industry Employment: What Percentage Would You Guess?

Friday, March 4th, 2005

In the last 10 years, over 416,000 new jobs were created in the State of Nevada. What percentage of those jobs came from the Gaming industry? Did you guess 50 percent? Not even close. Would you believe 12.7 percent? This according to an economic impact study conducted for the Nevada Resort Association. The association is sending the report, “The Facts About Gaming in Nevada,” to state legislators, county and city elected officials and other policy-makers throughout the state. The Greater Las Vegas economy is more diversified than most people from outside the state would imagine. During that same 10 year period, the casino sector’s percentage of the state’s total employment fell from 26 percent to 21 percent. MS Las Vegas Real Estate invites you to take a look at the New Las Vegas. We’re so much more than people think.
