Tribe’s Gambling Big California Business
By Earl
The Daily Democrat reports that the City of Davis has learned that bingo and casino operations by the Cache Creek Indian tribe “strengthens Yolo County's economy through employment, tourism and vendor contracts” and constitute “one of the largest businesses in the county.” The Capay Valley Casino alone employs 1,523 (1% of the county’s total workforce) and nearly half of them live in Yolo County, paying taxes and spending most of their incomes here.

This income may be regarded as additionally fortuitous as the tribe’s casino employees are paid an average of $22.90 an hour, over 50% more than the average casino worker wage of $15.30 elsewhere in Yolo county.

The report also reported that an expansion of the casino, now underway, will cost $200,000, and county vendors and construction companies will get about $7.3 million in contracts, though an estimated $35.5 million could end up with county businesses once ongoing contract negotiations are completed for the casino expansion.
