On November 7, 2006, the Arizona voters approved Proposition 202, referred to as the “Raise the Arizona Minimum Wage for Working Arizonans Act.” Under A.R.S. 23-364(A), which became effective January 1, 2007, the Industrial Commission of Arizona was given the authority to enforce and implement the Act.
Effective January 13, 2008, final Administrative Rules under Title 20, Chapter 5, Article 12 were approved and are currently in effect.
Effective January 1, 2013, Arizona’s minimum wage is $7.80 per hour. Every employer covered under the Act is now required to pay each employee wages not less than this amount.
