A voter-approved bill that would raise the minimum wage in Arizona and require employers to pay sick time to employees has met opposition from state legislators.

Voters initially approved Proposition 206 by an 18 percent margin back in 2016.

The proposition would have raised the hourly minimum wage from $8.05 to $12 by 2020 by raising the base wage to $10 initially before increasing every year until 2020.
