The 2017 Arizona Minimum Wage is
$10.00 per hour - NO LESS
The Arizona minimum wage is $10.00/hour
The current Arizona wage, as of January 1, 2017, is $10.00 per hour.
The FLSA requires employers to pay their employees at least the federal minimum wage ($7.25/hour); however, Arizona stepped in and made sure that its minimum wage exceeded the federal wage.
Arizona law, Arizona Revised Statutes § 23-363, requires all employers to pay their employees at least the Arizona minimum wage, and, under § 23-364, to pay one-and-one-half times the regular rate of pay for all overtime worked.
Because Arizona's minimum wage exceeds the Federal minimum wage, Arizona's minimum wage supersedes and controls. As such, no hourly employee in Arizona can be paid less than $10.00, with the exception of certain tipped employees.
So it's ILLEGAL to pay less than $10.00 per hour in Arizona.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
