Starting in 2021, the measure will increase the minimum wage based on the cost of living index for Arizona. Effective July 1st, the initiative also guarantees 40 hours of annual paid sick time to employees of businesses with 15 or more employees and 24 hours to those of businesses with less than 15 employees. The measure entitles employees to accrue one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. The measure permits earned paid sick time to be utilized for an employeeâ€™s medical care, an employeeâ€™s need to care for a family member, a public health emergency or addressing domestic violence.
For Cartwright School District, more than 700 employees will be impacted, with a recurring annual cost in excess of $650,000.
