Rivers casinos in Pittsburgh and Philly elevate the minimal wage with out tricks to $ 15 an hour
PITTSBURGH & PHILADELPHIA – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Rush Street Gaming’s two Pennsylvanian operations, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and Rivers Casino Philadelphia, are introducing a minimum wage of $ 15 an hour for employees without tipping throughout the property.
Notably, employees at both Rivers Casinos – those who earn an hourly rate plus tips – are already taking home over $ 15 an hour. For example, full-time dealers at Rivers Casino averaged $ 45,000 and $ 50,000 in their first year.
“We believe paying a living wage is more than a recruiting strategy – it is the right thing to do,” said Greg Carlin, CEO of Rivers Casino and Rush Street Gaming. “Our team members are committed to our success every day. This is just one more way to give back that commitment. ”
A competitive service package is another way to go. Rivers Casino offers a robust package of full and part-time insurance, including health, life and disability insurance, instant 401 (k) allowance, tuition reimbursement and more. Company-paid services increase the value of the hourly wage from $ 15 to about $ 25 an hour.
“We pride ourselves on being a preferred casino gaming employer,” said Bud Green, deputy general manager of Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “We offer applicants family-friendly wages, great benefits and a diverse, fair and integrative work culture.” Green has been with Rush Street for over a decade.
With COVID-19 restrictions lifted, more and more people are returning to casinos for the much-needed fun and games – slots and tables, sports betting, fine and casual dining, live music and more. Everywhere in Rivers Casinos, momentum is picking up, business levels are improving, and job opportunities are increasing.
“There has never been a better time to get into the gambling industry,” said Justin Moore, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. Moore began his gaming career more than 20 years ago as a drinks server in a Las Vegas casino. “It’s more than a job – it’s a career that can take you anywhere.”
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh employs approximately 1,300 team members, including approximately 400 in unpaid hourly positions. Rivers Casino Philadelphia employs approximately 1,200 team members, including approximately 200 in unpaid hourly positions.
Rush Street Gaming plans to implement the minimum wage of $ 15 without tip in all Rivers casinos, unless the existing employment contracts preclude otherwise.
