Las Vegas hotel and casino workers have voted to authorize a strike as early as next month. Contracts for about 50,000 culinary and bartender union workers expire at the end of May.

Workers are demanding a bigger share of the casino profits, but also protections against the use of robots and artificial intelligence to automate service jobs.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with the Culinary Union's Bethany Khan (@BethanyKhan) about those demands.
