Wynn Resorts lays off 261 workers in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Wynn Resorts Ltd. CEO Steve Wynn says his company has laid off 220 hourly and 41 salaried workers from its two Las Vegas hotel-casinos.

Wynn told The Associated Press the cuts were made Tuesday after some workers said they would prefer layoffs over wage and hour reductions.

The company cut wages and hours 18 months ago.

Wynn says the layoffs come after each department was reviewed three times and they amount to about 3 percent of the work force at the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas.

Wynn says 2,300 hourly workers who want to work full time but were reduced to 32 hours per week will have their hours restored.

The 1,400 workers who took 15 percent pay cuts will have their salaries restored.
