Arizona Chamber vows to fight minimum wage proposition in wake of high court ruling

Glenn Hamer, CEO and president of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the chamber will work to defeat Proposition 206 now that the Arizona Supreme Court has decided the initiative to increase the minimum wage in the state and mandate specific amounts of paid time off for workers will appear on the November ballot.

In his statement, Hamer thanked the Arizona Restaurant Association for challenging the validity of signatures submitted to the Secretary of State and noted “serious deficiencies” over the quality of many of the signatures.
