Layoffs coming to MGM Resorts employees as tourism slows

LAS VEGAS – Layoffs and furloughs are starting next week at MGM Resorts International in response to a slowdown in demand due to COVID-19 fallout.

“We just don’t know to what extent,” said Rocky Colavito, Jr., a Bellagio blackjack dealer who got news of the cuts before walking onto the casino floor for his Friday night shift.

MGM President Bill Hornbuckle sent a letter to employees Friday announcing workforce reductions and furloughs would begin next week.

“These decisions are never made lightly,” Hornbuckle wrote, “and we deeply regret the hardship it will place on these individuals and their families.”

Laid off workers will maintain benefits through June 30, the letter said.
