Perhaps it's the free market at work! There is some literature out there that says unionised workers can be more productive then non - unionised, hence justifying a greater wage. Perhaps this is what we are seeing in Las Vegas. There is no apriori law which says that succesful trade unions cannot be an outcome of a free market.

I second Kaveh.
Nevada may be without pro-union legislation, but isn't it also without anti-union legislation, such as "right to work" laws which prohibit union formation?
I think another aspect is Las Vegas's more professional approach to the services you speak of. I mean it's THE city for world class gambling, cooking, etc. This sense of professionalism and being part of a "club" (of card dealers for example) might create a guild complex.
