Topic: Tucson Goes $15 Minimum Wage

  • In other big election news, on Tuesday, Tucson voters approved an increase in the minimum wage. 
  • Prop 206 passed by a 2:1 margin in Arizona’s 2nd largest city and a Democrat stronghold. 
  • Current state minimum wage is $12.15 per hour and increases every year based on inflation. 
  • The wage will increase in Tucson every year incrementally starting in 2022 until reaching $15 by 2025. 
  • It’ll adjust annually after that based on inflation.  

Flagstaff residents voted twice and supported, both times, an increase in the minimum wage.

  • On January 1, 2022, the minimum wage will be $15.50 
  • That’ll be a nearly doubling of wages in Flagstaff in six years. 
  • There has been talk of a national $15 minimum wage in Congress but it’s failed to get majority support. 
  • Flagstaff has a clause in the law that requires the minimum wage to be $2 over the state wage.
