In comparison. The Phoenix metro area’s unemployment rate was at 4.9 percent, and Salt Lake City at 3.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Stats.

“The economic crisis hurt the Las Vegas economy throughout the board. The industries that were hit the most were building then things that remained in or associated to hospitality. Things like even taxicabs were harmed, although limousines were hurt much more,” said Steven Brown, economics professor at UNLV.

So when will the number of tasks return to their pre-recession levels?

“Right now we’re forecasting about 2 years, not for gaming but for looking at total work levels,” Brown stated. “We’re taking a look at about 2 years due to the fact that the economy has been speeding up. If we take a look at numbers like total nonfarming work, we’ll see an acceleration of the Clark County economy.”
