Arizona voters could get a chance this November to set the minimum wage for workers at $12 an hour by 2020.
Or perhaps just whatever $8.05 an hour now plus inflation by that point equals.
A group began gathering signatures this past week to put that $12-an-hour option on the ballot.
That’s less than the deal approved by California lawmakers to take that state’s minimum wage to $15. But Tomas Robles, executive director of Living United for Change in Arizona, said he believes this is a fair compromise, something that will help workers but not break businesses.
