Unemployment protest takes place on Las Vegas Strip
More than a dozen people gathered Friday evening on the corner of West Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard for a peaceful protest for families who haven’t received their unemployment payments.
After a Nevada judge signed an order last week mandating the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation resume paying self-employed and independent workers who previously received benefits before the state froze their funds, many say they still are without payment under the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, or PUA.
The Strip protest was organized by a group called Nevada United, which promised to protest as often as possible with the hope that the gatherings picked up more independent workers each time.
