Las Vegas Transforms Casino Into Food Bank As Working Poor Line Up For Miles 

In a post-corona world, Americans returned to some casinos along the Las Vegas Strip, but as we explain in this piece, they are not gambling.

A new, shocking reality has unfolded in a world of social distancing, stay-at-home public health orders, a crashed economy, and tens of millions of people out of work, the rise of America's new breadlines, as we've documented over the last several months, has been reminiscent of the breadlines of the Great Depression.

The Daily Mail, citing local reports from Nevada Public Radio, indicates some casinos in "Sin City" have been transformed into food banks as tens of thousands of working poor have recently become unemployed in the past six weeks thanks to the lockdowns. Many of these folks were employed at casinos, hotels, restaurants, and other non-essential businesses that remain closed.

Now, with an influx of people who can't survive on $1,200 checks from President Trump, and have drained savings, as their insurmountable debts cannot be serviced (likely deferred at the moment), casinos have joined the effort to feed America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the hell of it is, with election day coming closer and closer, neither of the candidates for President can fix this, come the first of 2021; In spite of the rhetoric on both sides, neither side of the aisle has a real clue as to what the hell is going on, and what, actually, to do to fix it, there is anything which can fix it.

That leads me to a sister article at this site, with the title: The unseen costs of government-forced lockdowns
