Minimum Wage

On March 1, the Missouri Supreme Court upheld the St. Louis City minimum wage increase, which was previously placed on hold in October 2015. 

This increase will gradually raise the minimum wage hourly rate for city employees from the state’s minimum wage to $10 in 2017 and $11.00 by 2018.¬†Missouri’s minimum wage is currently $7.70 an hour.

According to St. Louis Major Francis Slay, businesses will be given a “reasonable grace period” to comply with the law. At this time, no specific timeline has been provided regarding when businesses will be required to comply with the new wage. ¬†
