The state’s business community brings its last-ditch effort to kill a voter-approved minimum wage hike to the Arizona Supreme Court Thursday.

But it remains to be seen whether the business groups led by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry can get the relief from having to pay their workers more — even if their lawyers actually win.

That’s because the justices told the attorneys the only issue they want them to debate today is whether Proposition 206 violates a provision of the Arizona Constitution. It says if an initiative forces the state to spend more money it also must include a source for those dollars.
