LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Tropicana Las Vegas has given notice to 828 employees that they are being laid off beginning Thursday, Oct. 15.
And layoffs at two Paris Las Vegas restaurants are coming soon as notices have been filed with the state. Mon Ami Gabi intends to lay off 96 employees, and the Eiffel Tower Restaurant will lay off 53 employees. Both moves are scheduled to happen on Dec. 16, and the layoffs will be permanent.
