ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort of CityCenter to bring more women workers into the gaming industry in Las Vegas, Nevada. This move comes following an increase in the unemployment rate in Nevada in May 2009, as well as layoffs. Data from the U.S. Labor Department shows that women's share of total jobs has increased from 46.6 percent to 49.3 percent in the past 20 years. According to Kelley Tucky, vice president of staffing for CityCenter Group, they want women to consider nontraditional areas such as facility technicians and security.
