  INSIDE THE GLITTER


Carmen Rios: My mother had 16 kids, 12 of us are still living, and she worked outside the house too! So we're used to working.

You can learn about her life, and about the lives of other workers in Nevada's casino industry, at an exhibit of photos and brief interviews in Reno, Nev., called Inside the Glitter.
