The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians has implemented a minimum wage increase to $17 per hour.

The increase applies for the non-tipped, entry-level positions at its area properties and it was instituted just before California raised the statewide minimum wage to $15 per hour.

John Elliott, CEO for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians said: “We have reassessed our compensation offering to attract quality candidates for open positions throughout the organisation.

"For entry-level, hourly positions, raising the minimum wage to $17 per hour will improve our ability to hire team members in crucial areas, such as custodial, hotel operations and food and beverage.”

Elliot added that other employees throughout the enterprise might also see an increase in compensation, as it is currently under review.

The tribe announced the hosting of job fairs at the Dick DeWees Community Center in Lompoc and at the Santa Maria Inn.

Interview appointments can be made on the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians website.

Interested applicants are expected to arrive five minutes prior to their appointments, dress appropriately and bring a valid ID. Walk-ins are also welcome, however, candidates with appointments have priority.

According to the job fair announcement, full-time employees get benefits including medical, dental and vision insurance, a 401(k) with a matching funds program, tuition reimbursement and free shuttle service to and from the resort for Lompoc and Santa Maria residents.

The tribe employs a workforce of around 1,800 positions and owns and operates the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez, as well as two Solvang hotels.
