The initiative to raise Arizona's minimum wage to $12 an hour has seen plenty of recent out-of-state contributions. 

An ABC15 analysis of state campaign finance documents, of contributions of at least $10,000, since Oct. 1 shows that more than $850,000 has been spent in support of Proposition 206, which would raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour next year before a $12 an hour spike in 2020. 

Among the top contributors is the largest labor union in the country, the National Education Association in Washington, D.C. They donated $350,000 so far this month. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry has donated more than $25,000 against the initiative.

Take a look at who else has donated at least $10,000 for and against Prop. 206 below
