Nevada D.O.T. Safe Traveler Road Conditions
Nevada Trucking Association
Nevada trucking companies need safe and responsible drivers to deliver freight locally, regionally and over the road. The Silver State is 7th largest and 2/3rd of it's people live in Metro Las Vegas area.
Nevada farmers produce potatoes, dairy products, hay, onions and raise cattle and sheep. Many of the calves are shipped off to feed in the fall. I am sure bull haulers are happy about that.
Large industrial contributors to the economy are printing/publishing and food processing, and electric equipment and mining of more than 6 minerals.
Mining is major with Gold leading the way and Silver in a near second. Nevada is the world's 4th largest producer of gold.
US government owns more than 80% of the state's land.
Tourism brings in people from all of the world to visit Nevada largely due to Casinos and Resorts which in turn provides the largest number of jobs. However school systems are the top 3 employers.
However, the unemployment rate is still highest in the country at 14.4% in August 2011. (according to wiki)
Prostitution is voted legal in 8 counties out of the 14 that is eligible. To be eligible the county must have population of less than 400,000.
