The Arizona Senate today is set to consider a measure that would strip Arizona’s counties, cities and towns of the ability to set their own minimum wages and their explicit right to adopt employee benefits of their own liking.

A strike-everything amendment to HCR2014, proposed by Sen. Don Shooter, would declare a uniform minimum wage a “matter of statewide concern.”

The statewide minimum wage would be raised from $8.05 to $8.41 beginning Jan. 1, 2017, and would incrementally increase each following year, up to $9.50 in 2020.
