Layoffs at MGMMirage Confirms What We All Knew

Breaking news via the R-J. MGMMirage has laid off 440 managers, at "property and corporate levels".

Which pretty much confirms what we all knew, the recession is not only here, but it's walloping Vegas enough for one of the largest operators to resort to laying off middle management staff.

If you've been laid off and want to tell us about it, file your thoughts on our Message Board, we'd love to hear what happened.

If there is a bright side of the downturn in Vegas for tourists, its that room rates have been plummeting - a fact confirmed by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority recent press release.

The casino companies send us deals periodically to share with you guys. Some of the ones they send are silly, some are pretty good... we weed out the silly ones and post the good ones. If you book through a link on our site, they kick a coupla bucks back to us which helps us keep the coffee machine running.

The latest round of deals has a handful with very long expiration dates, much longer than the usual 'book in the next two weeks' jobs. Now they're expiration dates last until late summer, and some until the end of the 2008. If you're in the market to book for the rest of the year, check out the deals page.

Right after the Terry Lanni salary post, too.
