Mask mandates and lock downs in Nevada have contributed directly to the adverse ongoing economic conditions. 42 States have now ditched mask mandates. Sisolak refuses to even acknowledge the horrific unemployment numbers in his latest DETR press release. “This report shows rebounding employment growth in Nevada with the state adding 11,200 jobs in October, the second-strongest month of the past year. This growth was spread across many different industries with professional and business services growing the most. The state’s unemployment rate continued to drop, dipping from 7.5 percent in September to 7.3 percent in October, with the unadjusted unemployment rate falling from 6.4 percent to 5.8 percent. The state’s labor market is continuing a rapid recovery as we emerge from the COVID recession,” said David Schmidt, Chief Economist.” Nevada’s unemployment numbers for 2021. Jan. Feb.
