Coyote Valley Tribe Guarantees All Employees Earn A Minimum Of $15 Per Hour

Today the Coyote Valley Tribe in Redwood Valley, CA announced, all current and future employees of their business operations will earn a minimum of $15 per hour.

Tribal Chairman Michael Hunter said, “It our Tribe’s moral responsibility to continue to ensure that all of our employees earn a living wage. We will not wait until 2022 when the State mandated minimum of $15 per hour goes into effect. As California becomes a more expensive place to live, we feel obliged to become an ‘employer of choice’. Our employees’ continued success is our Tribes success.” Vice Chairman Patrick Naredo added, “It’s exciting to be in a position to offer these wages in this area. Our employees are the backbone of our businesses and we are very proud to do this.”                                                        

The wage increase is not the only excitement being created at Coyote Valley. A “new” Coyote Valley Casino is being constructed to replace the original Casino built in 1994, and will be completed in late spring. The new casino will have 3 restaurants, 8 gaming tables, 4 poker tables, 349 slots, and a state of the art multi-purpose showroom.
