Arizona voters pass minimum wage increase

Proposition 206 was approved Tuesday and will increase the base wage incrementally from $8.05 to $12 an hour. It would rise to $10 next year, then increase every year until 2020.

The measure also allows workers to earn one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked, depending on the size of the business. It also broadens the conditions that allow for sick time to include mental or physical illness or needing to care for a family member.

The nonpartisan Joint Legislative Budget Committee said it would be hard to determine the effect of a minimum wage increase, although many believe it will result in higher labor costs for businesses.

The federal minimum is $7.25 per hour.
