LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Boyd Gaming confirmed the company would move forward with permanent layoffs to a portion of its workforce on Monday. 

The employees in the layoff are ones who were previously furloughed and not called back to work. 

A statement from Boyd said the decision was difficult and they would financially assist the employees included in the layoff. 

"As was previously reported, in May we issued WARN Act letters advising certain team members of the possibility of layoffs in July. While we have been able to reopen most of our properties since that time, we are still facing significant restrictions on our business, and visitation levels remain well below pre-pandemic levels," the statement from Boyd said. 

As of Monday, a Boyd spokesman said the company has reopened nine of their Nevada properties. Main Street Station, Eldorado and Eastside Cannery remain closed.

The company did not confirm how many employees would be notified, but said it was on the lower end of the range of the WARN Act letter, which was cited between 25% and 60%.

SISOLAK IS KILLING NEVADA- WORKS FOR CHINA...SO WILL YOU IF WE DONT GET RID OF THE COMMUNIST TRAITOR DEMOCRAT TRASH

NevadaQTruth

The paIn and suffering is starting and unemployment system is going broke. If we close down again you can kiss Nevada good bye. Listening to a vengeful, uninformed governor was a bad idea. His staff can’t even do a press conference and have the data at hand. No jobs, no money, no future for trade show, entertainment and gaming. Top gaming executives selling their million dollar homes. The rats are jumping off the sinking ship. The lay offs and associated health issues will kill many more people than the virus. Many of these union employees with tips and overtime went from 28-35 an hour to 15 an hour equivalent even with the extra COVID money for unemployment. Contractors are now starting to feel the slowdown with job holds; More layoffs ! Closed Businesses = No Taxes, No Pay Checks and No Hope.

Sisolak is a Communist paid by Soros to decimate Nevada. That con artist Jim Murren sold his MGM stock and resigned days before the Plan-demic shutdown. HE KNEW. Now we are DOOMED..and he knows it. After he resigned that dirtbag Sisolak made him "Head of China virus task force" To funnel money to him. A CASINO BOSS? Head of a health task force? BLATANT CORRUPTION!!!!!! ALL of the Billionaires are selling their mansions....THEY KNOW. They are CRASHING THE HOUSING MARKET....AGAIN.

This is just the start of the job losses. Unless we shut down now , the virus will force an even worse outcome because we re-opened too soon. Many will find out it was a bad idea to listen to this President on this one.
