READ: Lawsuit To Stop Arizona Minimum Wage Increase, Filed By United Arizona Chambers of Commerce

The largest Chambers of Commerce in Arizona banded together today with Arizona liquor license holders to file an emergency action in Superior Court to stop the minimum wage from increasing on January 1.

Proposition 206 passed easily in November's election, and gradually increases the minimum wage to $12/hour by 2020, and calls for paid sick leave.

The plaintiffs believe that it violates the Arizona Constitution in two different ways: (1) that it forces the state to spend monies without designating a revenue source; and (2) that the minimum wage increase and the paid sick leave are separate issues that should not have been combined in one initiative.
