ROHNERT PARK, Calif. (KRON) – Graton Resort & Casino on Wednesday announced it is raising its minimum wage across the board for all workers.

This includes:

  • $17.50/hour for tipped workers (minimum $2.50 increase based on current wages)
  • $18.50/ for non-tipped workers (minimum $3.25 increase based on current wages)
  • 10% minimum pay raises for salaried employees
  • New quarterly discretionary bonus program

“Families in Northern California struggle to get by on the minimum wage,” said Graton Rancheria Tribal Chairman Greg Sarris.  “We already offer 100% paid employee health insurance. A wage increase seemed only fitting to help our team members after a difficult year.”

The raise goes into effect March 8.
