  • Prevailing Wage Arizona

    I am curious to know if the employer has to meet the min wage requirements from time to time. Let's say an employee starts with the min wage of $X/year in 2005 and never got an increment and is still making $x/year, but the min wage according to the state currently is more than $x/year. Is the employer mandated to pay the current min wage and keep meeting the min wage requirement as it keeps changing?

    Yes! The employer must update to the new minimum wage on the day it becomes effective.

      Agreed, although I am uncomfortable about the "x/year" notation. Minimum wage is always an hourly rate and always calculated on a workweek basis. When the OP talks about "x/year", I am concerned that they are talking about something other then minimum wage.

      Past that, the title mentioned "prevailing wage", which legally is not the same thing as minimum wage. Again, I am not sure that we understand just what the OP is talking about.
