Last year, 59% of Arizonans voted to increase the minimum wage to $12/hour by 2020, and to give workers paid sick time. So far, 500,000 Arizonans have already benefited from these changes. Our economy has benefited as well, with unemployment currently lower than it’s been for 10 years.

She’s also working to get rid of the higher minimum wage that applies specifically here in the city of Flagstaff.
