Will Las Vegas have enough workers for major construction projects?

Southern Nevada has seen many boom periods in its history. Another boom is now unfolding across Southern Nevada, with planned, proposed and construction projects underway totaling as much as $15 billion, according to Jeremy Aguero, a principal at Las Vegas-based Applied Analysis.

Laborers Union Local 872 workers regularly rally at Las Vegas Stadium Authority meetings, offering a can-do spirit. They say they will absolutely be able to complete the stadium project by the beginning of the 2020 football season.

But data suggests Nevada does not have enough construction workers to accommodate the timing needs of the stadium along with several existing and future major construction projects, including a Strip megaresort, two highway projects and a manufacturing plant.

10,000 construction workers short

“We’re about 25 percent above the national average for construction workers,” said Bob Potts, research director for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “But, our growth is exceeding that 25 percent. That means we don’t have enough of those workers for the current demand that exists.”

How short is Southern Nevada?

Aguero estimates Southern Nevada will be about 10,000 construction workers short of planned projects in the pipeline.

Construction industry professionals have said the most acute shortage may occur among professionals and specialists, such as architects and engineers.

On the rebound

Construction is currently the second-fastest growing industry as it rebounds from the major hit the industry took during the recession.

“Construction is dependent on growth that comes from a primary industry,” Potts said, referring to hospitality or manufacturing.

Likewise, its decline also depends on a primary industry.

While the hospitality industry lost 30,100 jobs between 2007 and 2010, the construction industry shed 75,400 jobs, according to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

Secret Las Vegas: 35 Insider Tips From The Locals

Think you know Las Vegas? Think again. There’s so much more to this city than fountains and gambling tables and star-studded concerts. And no matter how many times you’ve been, there’s a hidden Vegas that the residents keep to themselves. I tapped into a handful of in-the-know experts and convinced these lady bosses to share their favorite secret finds. From places where artists go for inspiration to secret celebrity shopping spots to the coolest off-the-Strip gems, this is the Las Vegas list you need to have. (For more amazing Vegas addresses, check out “Best Las Vegas Restaurants: 25 Secret Spots Where The Locals Eat.”)

James Turrell Las Vegas

This James Turrell installation is hidden away in a shop.

What: A Secret Light Show

Recommended By: Jessica Galindo, fine artist, leatherwear designer and owner of Leather Couture in Summerlin

What: One of artist James Turrell’s most dazzling installations, Akhob, is tucked away inside a Louis Vuitton store. It’s exquisitely executed and such an experience that you must have a reservation to see it, no shoes, only a few people at a time. You are escorted by an exhibit representative who explains the magnitude of the experience. Yes — it’s more an experience than a visual art show. If you allow it, it takes you out of Las Vegas and out of your own thoughts. An amazing must-see. In fact, the permanent installation is so exciting that it has inspired Vegas to install other permanent art fixtures around the city. Reservations book up a month out, so call ahead.

What: Landscapes Worth the Drive

Recommended By: Dorit Schwartz, a Vegas-based artistwhose work is carried at The Wynn and is currently on exhibit at Delano Las Vegas

Where: I love going to the Valley of Fire, which feels like a work of art. It is roughly a 40-minute scenic drive from Las Vegas. White Domes is one of my favorite sections: This is where you will see fiery red rocks and sandstone formations with brilliant contrasting colors of white, lavender and purple. Aside from the visual aspect, people enjoy coming to this park for the spiritual aspect, using the area to meditate and connect with their inner selves. There’s a purity and serenity that surrounds this desert wilderness.

What: Top Golfing

Recommended By: Denise Valdez, 8 News Now anchor (follow her on Twitter and Facebook)

Where: There are only so many shows, slot machines and clubs you can take before you need some sunshine and fresh air. Topgolf is a four-level sporting and entertainment complex at the MGM Grand. Grab a climate controlled bay on the third floor for the best views of the enormous TV screens and driving range. Hackers to competitors will enjoy swinging clubs and hitting targets with balls that score themselves. You can take a dip in the sexy swimming pool or settle in to watch sports on one of the hundreds of HDTV’s. Topgolf is a fun spot for a corporate event or with family — everyone will find something to enjoy here.

What: Once-in-a-Lifetime Views 

Recommended By: Amy Rossetti, founder and CEO, Rossetti Public Relations

Where: Las Vegas is surrounded by many must-see natural wonders, such as the grandiose Grand Canyon, red sandstone-brimming Valley of Fire and post-volcanic Fortification Hill, as well as structures like the Hoover Dam and the beautiful resorts of the Strip. So what better way to experience it all than with a bird’s-eye view on Maverick Helicopters’ Dream Catcher Sunset Tour, which takes guests across Nevada and Arizona in four hours. For a unique experience, guests can request their preferred music by speaking with their pilot, which really personalizes the trip. I can’t tell you how much I loved flying over the Strip at sunset while listening to Frank Sinatra — it was truly breathtaking. (Another place to get a great view: a terrace from a room at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, located in the heart of the Strip.)

Absinthe

Under the big top in Vegas: Absinthe.

What: The Show You Must See 

Recommended By: Shannon McBeath, co-founder of The Ride, premium indoor cycling studio; and Jessica Galindo, fine artist, leatherwear designer and owner of Leather Couture in Summerlin

Where: Shannon McBeathAbsinthe is my pick for best show on the Strip and my go-to when friends are in town. Circus-style entertainment (think Cirque du Soleil) with breathtaking acts combined with incredibly funny and provocative humor in an intimate setting. Love the tableside VIP champagne tables.

Jessica Galindo: Favorite show to date. Smushed into a cozy, almost too-close-for-comfort seating arrangement inside a tent in the back of Caesars hotel, this show is ballsy, scary, thrilling, jaw-dropping and badass. I recommend everyone see it once, and I feel like it’s a show that locals can see over and over again and not be bored of it. It’s a bit brass, but the acts are just incredible. Once isn’t enough.

Heavyweight fighter Chuck Wepner talks about his new movie, Sylvester Stallone, and Muhammad Ali

Movies, pro boxer Chuck Wepner, and Philadelphia have a checkered history.

Philadelphia is where Sylvester Stallone made Rocky, the movie inspired by Wepner’s 15-round, go-the-distance fight with Muhammad Ali in 1975, but it’s also the site of a less-heralded episode featuring Wepner and the Rocky franchise.

After the film was released, won the Oscar in 1977, and became a cultural phenomenon, Wepner and Stallone became pals – in fact, Stallone offered him a part in Rocky II as a sparring partner. It could have been a big break for Wepner, but he was in the midst of a drug and booze binge and drove all night from North Jersey for his audition with Stallone at a Center City hotel.

“That’s exactly the way it was,” said Wepner. “I should have taken more time, should have studied the script. Stallone did everything he was supposed do, and if I would have done better, maybe I would have gotten the part.”

He wasn’t ready, and he blew it – a sequence of events depicted with unblinking honesty in the new movie Chuck, based on Wepner’s colorful and ultimately inspiring life story.

Chuck – which opens here Friday – ends on an upbeat note. The tenacity that helped Wepner succeed in the ring allows him to outlast the mistakes of his life. Still, the movie does not skip unflattering details.

“I like the movie a lot. You know, it tells the truth. I was living through a tough stretch at that point. I did a lot of partying. It was a wild time in my life. But I’ve been straight and clean for 30 years now. I can tell you, it’s a better way to live,” said Wepner, 78, who will be in Philadelphia to host a private screening Thursday, along with producer (and Philadelphia native) Mike Tollin.

Chuck touches upon the relationship between Stallone and Wepner, who later sued Stallone over parallels between his life and that of the fictional Rocky Balboa. But that was lawyer stuff – they are still friendly, and Stallone reviewed and approved the script for Chuck.

“He was very cool with it,” Wepner said, “saw the script, and his feeling is that we portrayed him true to life.”

Wepner was even closer with Ali, and was among those who attended the champion’s funeral in June in Kentucky. He got to know Ali well in the days leading up to their Cleveland title bout, during which Wepner earned the champion’s respect.

“Like he said after the fight, ‘I wouldn’t want to fight that Chuck Wepner in an alley.’ I mean, what I tried to do was rough him up. I couldn’t outbox him, he was so great. I remember that as a great time. He was a great man, and I feel very sad about his passing.”

The two made several appearances together over the years, and even cooperated on a four-day tour, staging a comic version of their fight.

Wepner said that Chuck has capture his essence as a fighter and that star Liev Schreiber was perfect in the role.

Why Canelo Alvarez, Golden Boy finally agreed to Triple-G fight

Chris Mannix, The Vertical
Yahoo Sports
May 8, 2017, 9:56 AM

LAS VEGAS – The roars of 20,000-plus shook T-Mobile Arena on Saturday, and from his seat in the lower bowl Gennady Golovkin let all of it wash over him. For all of Golovkin’s accomplishments — the championship fights, the headlined pay per views, the millions in career earnings — he had never had this. More than a decade into his professional career, a super fight had eluded him.

No longer. An anticipated showdown between Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez was made official on Saturday, announced with a WWE-style production designed to make the audience forget the $70 Golden Boy just swiped from them. Alvarez-Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was unwatchable, a 36-minute sparring session that took the momentum boxing built with Anthony Joshua’s spectacular knockout win over Wladimir Klitschko last month and ground it to a halt. Yet the sight of Golovkin and Alvarez in the ring together was enough to ramp it back up again.

Golovkin wanted this. Asked for this. Craved this. Canelo was anointed from an early age. Golovkin? He had to earn it. His first promoter, Universum, ignored him. U.S. promoters showed little interest in him. Opponents ran from him. Had HBO not invested in Golovkin, anonymity might have defined him.

That isn’t meant to slight Canelo. His good looks, Mexican heritage and raw power gave him early advantages. His fearlessness and success in the ring let him keep them. He fought Austin Trout when he didn’t need to and Erislandy Lara when his promoter begged him not to. He didn’t duck Golovkin last year. He doesn’t duck anyone.

9 places on the Vegas Strip where you can still find free parking

Jay Jones

If you haven’t been to Vegas in a while, you may not know that some Strip resorts now charge for parking. Aria, New York-New York, Vdara, MGM Grand and others started charging visitors for self- and valet parking last summer.

But you can still find free parking along the Strip, if you know where to go.

 

1. Circus-Circus

Self-parking is free, but valet is not. Expect to pay $10 for up to four hours, and $15 for four to 24 hours.

 

2. The Cosmopolitan

Self- and valet parking are free, but only until May 16. After that, you get one free hour of self-parking and will pay $7 for up to four hours and $10 for four to 24 hours. And yes, that applies to hotel guests too.

 

3. SLS

All parking is free here. Plus, the hotel is the northernmost stop for the Las Vegas Monorail if you want to use public transit.

 

4. Stratosphere

This iconic spot offers free self- and valet parking.

 

5. Treasure Island

Not only does this independently owned hotel-casino not charge guests, but it intends to begin advertising as a fee-free parking destination on the Strip.

 

6. Trump International Hotel

Only valet parking is offered, but it’s complimentary.

7. The Venetian and the Palazzo

These sister properties are the only remaining mega-resorts that don’t charge for parking. Hotel officials say they have no plans to start charging either.

 

8. Wynn Las Vegas

Self-parking is free, but Wynn and Encore charge for valet services.

 

9. Shopping centers

Parking is free at several shopping centers along the Strip, including the Shoppes at Mandalay Place (between Mandalay Bay and the Luxor), the Shops at Crystals (in front of Aria and Vdara) and Fashion Show Mall (across the street from Wynn-Encore).

So who’s charging?

Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts have implemented fees for self-parking and valet at a broad swath of their properties along Las Vegas Boulevard. This week, MGM Resorts increased fees they started rolling out last year.

Want to pop into Bellagio or Aria for a meal or a show? Plan to fork over $20 for up to four hours in valet parking, double what it was before the increase Wednesday.
