Arizona Minimum Wage Coalition
The Raise the Minimum Wage for Working Arizonans Act increases the minimum wage to $6.75 an hour for working Arizonans starting in 2007. So that Arizona workers continue to receive fair paychecks that keep up with inflation, the Arizona minimum wage will then be adjusted one time each year to keep pace with the cost-of-living. The initiative applies the Arizona minimum wage law statewide because in Arizona no fulltime worker should get a wage so low that they live in poverty.

Based on the federal law, the current minimum wage in Arizona is $5.15 per hour.

Proposition 202 would establish a state minimum wage law and raise the minimum wage to $6.75 per hour beginning January 1, 2007. The state minimum wage would be increased each January 1 for changes in the cost of living.

The new state minimum wage law would apply to all employers except:
1. Any person who is employed by a parent or a sibling.
2. A person who is employed performing babysitting services in the employer's home on a casual basis.
3. Employees who regularly receive tips and who are otherwise exempt under federal minimum wage law.
4. The State of Arizona government. But political subdivisions of this state would have to comply with the state minimum wage law.
5. The United States government.
6. A business that has less than $500,000 in gross annual revenue and that is exempt from having to pay a minimum wage under federal law.
