Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino Fires 1,300 Employees

In the US it is very common for Indian/Native tribes to run casino’s in their own territories, but while some might think it is a good idea, others are completely against it. The Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino has experienced their share of problems, which has now escalated into new heights.


The tribe owning the casino has had some internal issues, which has lead to tribal fighting between the leaders and their followers, including inside the casino. Last week we reported that the federal judge had ordered the casino closed until the tribe could solve their problems and now it seems they can’t, as they have decided to fire almost their entire staff, a massive 1,300 employees.


The owners of Chukchansi casino send a letter to their employees to explain the situation, with one line being the kicker for the employees: “We cannot anticipate the duration of this closure because the government entities will not tell us how long this closure will remain in effect.”


The factions of the tribe who is fighting over control of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino will be meeting up in court on Friday to discuss the issue.
