‘O’Reilly Factor’ Producer Finds Out Why Las Vegas’ Unemployment Rate Is Skyrocketing

The unemployment in the United States is 8.1 percent, but in the state of Nevada it’s 11.7 percent. In tonight’s Watters’ World segment on The O’Reilly Factor, producer Jesse Watters went to Las Vegas to find out what’s going on. He hit the streets to talk to folks and while he found many people were visiting Vegas for partying, gambling and shopping, one resident described it as “a tale of two cities.”

Watters told Bill O’Reilly, “There’s about a half a million population in Vegas, but 40 million people

visit Vegas each year, so it’s a trickle-down economics situation. Conservative tycoons run The Strip … and they compete to see who can build bigger fiefdoms there.”
