2023 Unofficial Minimum Wage Increases: Today, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the August 2022 Consumer Price Index (CPI) numbers, which show an 8.3% increase from 2021. That number is used to adjust next year’s minimum wage in Arizona. The City of Flagstaff’s minimum wage ordinance also uses the CPI data for its 2023 increase.
Please note that the official wage increases have not yet been announced, but if my math is correct, the state minimum wage will increase from the current $12.80 hour to $13.85 ($1.05 increase). Flagstaff’s minimum wage is estimated to rise from the current level of $15.50 hour to $16.80 ($1.30 increase). Increases will be effective 1/1/2023.
