Study: Las Vegas to Lose 4 Percent of Work Force

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A new study is predicting that southern Nevada
may lose more than 35,000 jobs this year.

The study conducted by Massachusetts-based IHS Global Insight for the U.S. Conference of Mayors found that employers in Las Vegas will cut nearly 4 percent of the city's 900,000-worker labor force.

The study ranks Las Vegas No. 15 in the country for projected job loss in 2009. Los Angeles ranked No. 2, behind New York.

The study says local job losses will center on the construction and tourism sectors.
