50 000 workers at casino Las Vegas are going to strike against the robots

Members of the Culinary Union, working in many of the largest casinos in Las Vegas, ready to strike if no agreement is reached on the nominated conditions. 1 June, less than a week, the contracts expire 50 000 Union members that allows them to strike. Employment very different from the bartenders to the maids. The reason for the strike as you have already begun to guess, partly lies in the robots.

The last time the strike of casino workers in Las Vegas took place in 1984, lasted 67 days and a cost of more than $ 1 million per day of downtime.

Why are people willing to strike? Of course, they ask for higher wages. But this is only one of the reasons. The second reason is the increase of safety of work, especially the robots.

"We support innovations that improve jobs, but are against automation when it only destroys jobs," says Mona Lisa Arguello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union. "Our industry must innovate without losing touch with the people".

Chad Neanover, assistant cook at Margaritaville, says he voted for a strike to work is not given to the robot.

Why are people scared of robots? The thing is that the service industry is the best automation, but still needs people. Casino cannot substitute for casino workers by robots in droves, but have increasingly come to the measure of automation. People have no choice but to prepare for the worst scenario. Hence the strike.
