    Thanks to Julie Pace, Cavanagh Law Firm, for this update:

    As you are aware, Arizona voters approved Prop 206, which increases the minimum wage in Arizona to $10.00/hour on January 1, 2017, and increases every year until it is $12.00/hour in 2020.  Additionally, beginning July 1, 2017, employer must provide paid sick time to all employees.  Attached is a short summary of the new minimum wage and sick leave requirements.
