TULSA, OK – Osage Casinos is raising the minimum wage for hourly employees to $12 per hour and offering a $1,000 sign-on bonus to select positions.

“In a year that certainly had its challenges, we are grateful for the continued success of our casinos,” said Byron Bighorse, CEO. “We pride ourselves on being good stewards, and with that comes the opportunity to increase the minimum wage to employees in select positions. We are ecstatic about this new development and excited to see how it can help enhance our workforce.”
In addition to increasing the minimum wage for hourly employees, Osage Casinos will continue to offer generous benefits, including medical, dental and vision insurance; 401k retirement savings plan with a 5% employer match; employer paid life insurance and short term disability; paid time off; paid maternity and paternity leave; and more.
