LITTLE ROCK, Ark.–The Natural State has officially welcomed a new minimum wage.

The rate will go up to $8.50 the first of the year.
    
This is part of a ballot initiative that was approved by voters in 2014.

Even though some people’s salaries will go up, others are saying they don’t think this will help those living pay check to pay check.  
    
Since the ballot initiative has passed, the minimum wage has gone up from $6.25 to $8.50.
