Arizona’s minimum wage is far too low

As a small business owner, I am disappointed by business leaders’ recent calls to turn away from doing what’s right for our employees. On Nov. 8, Arizonans have an opportunity to vote on Proposition 206, the Arizona Healthy Working Families Initiative to raise the minimum wage and guarantee earned paid sick days.

No matter the vote, empowerment scholarships have helped many

In November, Arizona voters will decide whether expanding the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program makes sense. It was originally started to help the parents of disabled children, foster children, or parents who are active military. It evolved, with little controversy, to include adopted children, children attending D/F rated schools, and those in Native American communities. About 5,000 children are now using the scholarships to attend private schools or be home-schooled, if they don’t feel the public school system is right for their special, unique needs.
