- Impending Minimum Wage Rise Highlights Number of People Working at that Rate | Legal News | News Ticker
In 2006, Arizona passed a law that provided for a rise in the minimum wage designed to keep up with inflation. While this was and is still seen by many as a positive step, a review of the impending rise in the minimum wage also shines a light on just how many people are forced to work at this level of income. This revelation should alert anyone that there are many reasons as to why Arizona’s economy is struggling and why so many people continue to suffer through extreme financial difficulties.
According to official records, the minimum wage in Arizona is set to rise to $7.35 per hour, which is a raise from the previous level of $7.25. Tipped employees such as table servers will see their minimum wage rise to $4.35 per hour, up from $4.25. When someone computes what this total means in real numbers, it shows that those who are working for minimum wage will see their income increase by a total of $200 per year. The real numbers involved with minimum wage workers highlights how even those who are employed on some level would have serious problems surviving at a reasonable level.
In addition, the statistics regarding how many people who are working for minimum wage provide a glimpse at just how many people are struggling even though they may not be included in the unemployment rate. While many would assume that those who work for this wage are students and young people, statistics indicate that approximately 75 percent of those who earn at this level are adults. In addition, those adults who work for minimum wage are parents to over 200,000 children in Arizona.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
