Flagstaff’s minimum wage increases to $15 an hour January 1st. The increase stems from an ordinance passed by the voters in the November 2016 and amended by the city council in 2017. The Minimum Wage Ordinance covers all people in the city who work, or expected to work, 25 or more hours a week in any calendar year. Also under the ordinance, people who regularly and customarily receive tips or gratuities, an employer may pay tipped employees a maximum of up to three-dollars an hour less than the city’s minimum wage providing the employee earns at least the hourly minimum wage for all hours worked for each workweek. In January of 2022, Flagstaff’s minimum wage will top out at $15.50 an hour. In 2023, the city’s minimum wage will be determined by the state’s Consumer Price Index, however, the wage can’t fall below two dollars more than the state’s minimum wage, but it could go up from $15.50. In 2021, the state’s minimum wage will rise to $12.15 an hour. For more information on Flagstaff’s Minimum Wage Ordinance, log on to flagstaff.az.gov/minwage.
