There are 12million Entertainment industry workers in the US that have be effected by the recent Pandemic. Las Vegas, being the entertainment capital of the US, has seen some of the largest economic injury. Entertainment workers in Las Vegas are facing extremely hard times; most are laid off till further notice and new layoffs are being announced weekly. The career to which we have dedicated our lives is simply gone. The month of March marked the last time many had a paying gig. With social distancing regulations, entertainment will be one of the last industries to come back in a meaningful way. While we must remain hopeful that our industry will come back one day, we must fight now to stay afloat and support each other in these trying times. Together, we can illuminate the darkness, spreading hope needed by so many.
