WESTSIDE — Wondering what will happen to the area around the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders when they start playing at their new stadium in 2020? If Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak has his way, the area will become “an entertainment district similar to the Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego near Petco Park the home Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres,” he tells Vegas Inc. Aside from restaurants and bars, Sisolak, who is running for governor, says people have approached him about Raiders- and UNLV-themed bars opening in the area. [Vegas Inc]

LAS VEGAS — Some fast-food workers at several local restaurants went on strike on Monday on a quest to get a $15 minimum wage and union rights. The strike came on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King protesting with striking workers during the Memphis Sanitation Strike. Protestors outside a McDonald’s on South Eastern Avenue chanted “Workers’ Rights are Civil Rights” and held “I AM” and “Fight for $15” signs, CBS Las Vegas reports. [CBS Las Vegas]
