Did casinos strike
They did strike, but not at first. The story begins in the early 1900s when cardsharps and muck houses sprung up in Nevada. These gambling parlors operated without oversight and were seen as a social evil by the respectable classes. The first casinos opened their doors in 1931, however, after fierce lobbying by the establishments of the state, they were forced to have strict regulations and age limits on the gambling tables. It wasnt until 1931 that people could legally gamble in Nevadaat that point it was actually illegal to even walk into a casino.Workers at the Battle Mountain Mine strike on July 19, 1922, near Elko, Nevada.The mines operators had begun breaking the unions contracts by firing striking workers. Nearly 600 workers struck for higher wages and union representation. Workers were arrested for trespassing at company property and galena mine (where they mined gold).

Roosevelt created the National Recovery Administration, which was responsible for setting up codes of fair competition for industries such as mining and agriculture (the NRA collapsed in early 1934). The NRA forced mine operators to raise wages and provide workers with health insurance. Eventually all of these concessions led to a settlement between striking miners and mine operators. On September 1st, 1932, Battle Mountain Mine reopened with increased wages, pension plans and improved work conditions. It was one of many miner labor strikes that ended up causing the downfall of the NRA (look up Bartlett incident).
