Well considering that minimum wage in AZ...

So glad Gavin can find time to worry about Arizona. Not like he has anything else to do, like I don't know, monitor BART cops who shoot unarmed people on train platforms or take a look at the fact that 1 in 3 SF city employees make more than six figures.

The Arizona law has not even taken effect yet and won't until 90-days after the end of the current legislative session which is projected to be in May.
