Minimum Wage Increase
Following the passage by voters of Proposition 206 last month, Arizona’s minimum wage will increase to $10 per hour on January 1, 2017.
The paid sick time provisions of the proposition will go into effect on July 1, 2017.
Several Chambers of Commerce and Industry have filed a lawsuit against the proposition’s minimum wage and paid sick time provisions. They argue that the Proposition failed to identify a funding source for its costs.
