As expected, minimum wage hike passes

Posted By on Tue, Nov 4, 2014 at 8:29 PM

The ballot proposal to incrementally increase Arkansas's minimum wage will pass, according to the Associated Press

Arkansas is one of few states where the current state minimum wage is lower than the national minimum wage at $7.25. It will now rise to $7.50 an hour on Jan. 1, 2015; to $8 an hour on Jan. 1, 2016, and to $8.50 on Jan. 1, 2017.
