Las Vegas hotel jobs in the US have been hit by the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, with the majority of hotel workers reporting that they are losing their jobs due to the attack.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVPD) says that hotel workers in Las Vegas, Las Vegas Metro and the International District have lost more than 100 jobs in light of the shooting, and that many have received threats.
More than 1,100 people have been confirmed dead in the attack, which has left at least 58 dead and another 200 injured.
In the days since the attack began, the number of Las Vegas hotels has fallen by 20%, according to the LVPD.
Las Vegas is in the midst of a severe heat wave, and many hotels are under the water as a result.
According to LVPD spokesperson Officer Michael Botticelli, the hotel industry is not experiencing the kind of layoffs that it did during the recession.
The LVPD said that the number and types of job cuts have declined, but they have not been as extensive as they were in the summer of 2017, when nearly 300,000 hotel jobs were lost.
The department has increased staffing at hotels by 30% since January, Botticell said.
Some of the cuts have been to support the medical, nursing and other services that are available to hotel workers.
However, Botticedlli added that some of the most vulnerable hotel workers, including cooks, waiters, and waitresses, have also been impacted.
The number of hotel job losses is expected to continue to rise, with many workers reporting their jobs to have been lost.
“We are experiencing a lot of uncertainty as to what the future holds,” Botticella said.
“Our priority is to make sure that all those affected are able to recover from the injuries and the losses.”
