While the restaurant industry is booming on
the Las Vegas Strip, restaurant workers are being
left behind. Culinary Union is changing that. Join us!

The Las Vegas Strip features some of the richest restaurants in the country.

Restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip bring in millions of dollars of revenue each year and are a major contributor to casino profits. Food and beverage sales represented 25% of total income made by these casinos overall and are nearly back to pre-pandemic levels.

While profits have skyrocketed for restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, wages for non-union restaurant workers are lagging behind.

Nationally, the number of food prep and serving related jobs has increased by 27% since layoffs during the pandemic, but the average wage has only increased 8%. In Las Vegas, the Culinary Union has seen nearly 10,000 union jobs that haven’t returned due to pandemic-related cuts and buffet closures.

Today, the average non-union wage in Las Vegas for a food prep and/or serving related worker is $14.39 an hour: An annual average of $29,920.

After working endlessly to keep the industry afloat during the pandemic, we deserve to live and work with dignity and respect. We deserve to thrive. Join us in fighting for a union and telling every restaurant: One Job Should Be Enough!
