In 2020 Arkansas’ minimum wage goes up 75 cents: from $9.25 an hour to $10 an hour.
For firefighters starting out in Harrison, they currently only make $9.40 an hour.
“Roughly 10 members of our department were going to fall below that minimum wage if we didn’t do something,” said Harrison Fire Chief Marc Lowery.
