Speaking of the SEIU efforts to raise minimum wages across the country, a legal effort to block the voter approved wage hike in Arizona from taking effect on Sunday has been dismissed by the court.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Daniel Kiley rejected several arguments put forth by a number of Chambers of Commerce that the wage hike violated Arizona state law by not identifying a source of revenue as required to offset the additional costs.  The voter approved measure hikes the minimum waged almost $2 to $10 an hour and mandates that private employers provide paid sick leave to their employees.  The Chambers are expected to appeal the ruling.
