The Right to Return Bill
Senate Bill 386 would give tens of thousands of hospitality, casino, travel, and stadium workers, many of who have been unemployed for over a year, the Right to Return to their jobs (if the employee had been laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19) when the business reopens or resumes operations.
Tens of thousands of Nevada’s workers have lost their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic due to no fault of their own. Workers should get their jobs back when businesses reopen.
A Right to Return law would prevent employers from using a global pandemic to get rid of older workers in shameful attempt to force them into early retirement. It would be an injustice to kick long-term frontline employees, who have contributed to Nevada’s success for decades, to the curb once the pandemic is over.
A Right to Return legislation is a common-sense measure that is urgently needed to create stability in Nevada’s workforce. We stand firmly with all Nevada workers in calling on the Nevada Legislature to stand with working families and pass Senate Bill 386.

Who we are

The entertainment industry evaporated in mid-March. We were the first to go, and will be the last to return to work, as we require the safe gathering of large groups.
This includes touring concerts and productions, Broadway shows, casino production shows, film/tv, nightclubs, conventions.
We are a skilled workforce of technicians and artists.
Return to work
We insist that the federal government provide direct economic support for organizations in the arts, entertainment, and media industries with appropriate workforce restoration requirements to get people back to work when it is safe to do so.
We insist that the federal government extend the CARES Act unemployment insurance provisions for as long as the health crisis persists, at it's current minimum wage levels of $600.00 /Wk
