Superior Court judge refuses to block minimum wage hike

Saying there are no constitutional violations, a judge on Wednesday refused to block the voter-approved law that requires employers to pay their workers at least $10 an hour beginning Jan. 1.

In a setback for business interests, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Daniel Kiley rebuffed their arguments that Proposition 206 legally should have been split into two separate measures, one to raise the hourly wage in steps — it eventually would hit $12 by 2020 — and the other to require that employers give workers at least three days of paid personal leave.

The judge said requirements for separate ballot measures applies only to constitutional provisions. By contrast, Proposition 206 simply amends statute.

And Kiley said even if that were not the case, both the idea of raising wages and providing paid time off are sufficiently interrelated to the “minimum conditions of employment.”

1. Super!

$10.00 per hour is not near enough, but it's a start in the right direction.

2. Hedge Fundies can make $1 billion a year and be taxed at 15%, CEO's can make $20, 50 million

or more, no problem, but let a working stiff make $10 measly bucks an hour and the shit hits the fan!
