The Labor Department of the Arizona Industrial Commission announced recently that pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes §23-363, the minimum wage for the state of Arizona will increase to $7.35 per hour effective January 1, 2011. The law requires an adjustment to the minimum wage be calculated each year.
Adjustment Is Tied to Changes in CPI
The adjustment is tied to the US All-Urban Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the 12 months ending in August. The 1.1% increase in the CPI will result in an increase of $0.10 for 2011.
