Lost Wages, Nevada is a city.
Unlike its nearby neighbor, Las Vegas, it did not even bother with such niceties as a Chamber of Commerce. The place existed for one reason, to afford a convenient grouping for businesses out to fleece suckers.
To visitors at night as they pass over a rise and the desert city was laid out before, it looks like a huge neon dinosaur making it with 6,000 acres of electrified sequins him.
A sign touted the great taxi service in downtown Lost Wages. "No need to walk, use our cheap, clean, luxurious cabs!"
