Is The Work Card Process Working?

AIR DATE: January 16, 2014

The City of Las Vegas is considering changing the work card system for people in certain jobs. The reforms follow several cases where members of the public had to appeal denials in front of the entire council. The hearings have been described as "torture" by Councilman Bob Beers, who said the council should not be in the business of determining who has the moral standing to work in Las Vegas. So is the work card system antiquated? And can it be tweaked to better serve the city and its businesses?

GUESTS

Bob Beers, Las Vegas City Councilman

Denise Kee, Fingerprint Bureau Director, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
