Missouri is planning to roll back the minimum wage for 35,000 St. Louis workers.
In May, St. Louis workers won passage of an $10/hour minimum wage. This generated much needed raises for 35,000 workers in the city, many of whom struggled on the state’s minimum wage of $7.70 per hour. Now, Missouri Republicans are going to take that raise away — and take money out of our paychecks.
This would make St. Louis the first major city to lose a minimum wage hike. The businesses of St. Louis must vow to #SaveTheRaise for the hardworking people of St. Louis.
