Judge Denies Groups’ Efforts to Stop Minimum Wage Hike
As you may know, voters approved a minimum wage hike beginning in January, but a Maricopa Superior Court judge has denied business groups efforts to stop the hike. The businesses have sued in order to stop Proposition 206 from going into effect, arguing that the proposition costs the state money because of the increase in costs for health and social service contracts. The judge made the decision to reject the bid, meaning the $10 wage hike will happen come January. For the best local coverage of this story, check out Phoenix Business Journal.
