Minimum Wage in Arizona

As of January 1, 2015, the ICA (Industrial Commission of Arizona) has determined that Arizona’s hourly minimum wage was set at $8.05, a 1.89 percent increase (or $0.15) over the 2014 level ($7.90).

Every year, the minimum wage can be increased in line with the inflation rate and is based on the cost of living as indicated by the Consumer Price Index, or CPI. As there has been hardly any inflation during 2015, the ICA has decided that the 2016 minimum wage level didn’t need to be increased to compensate for increased cost of living. In Arizona, there are 24.000 minimum wage workers. The ICA is the state’s body for administrating and enforcing Arizona’s minimum wage.
