Hundreds of hotel, casino and restaurant workers rallied on the Las Vegas Strip as the culinary union made a second monthly call to return more people to jobs idled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As reported by the Associated Press, the Culinary union said that more than one-third of its 60,000 members haven't been rehired, despite a recovery by casinos and hotels from closures imposed in March 2020.

Union President Ted Pappageorge said companies charging full rates should provide full service. The message echoed calls made during a Sept. 24 march on the Strip.

Casinos statewide have been setting monthly winnings records, hotel room rates have rebounded and tourism officials report the number of visitors is approaching pre-pandemic levels.
