Arizona will raise its minimum wage 10 cents above the federal rate on Jan. 1, 2011, bringing it to $7.35 an hour

In 2006, Arizona voters enacted the “Raise the Minimum Wage for Working Arizonans Act.” This law provides for annual minimum wage rate hikes based on increases in the cost of living. The cost of living is based on the federal Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers, U.S. City Average.

The Industrial Commission of Arizona is charged with determining the increases.

The state has not yet issued a revised minimum wage poster, but when it does, each Personnel Concepts update subscriber will receive the new panel in the mail. The Space Saver-1 All-On-One Arizona State and Federal Labor Law Poster will also be updated to reflect the newly mandated poster.
