Our Missouri neighbors who work full time should not have to live in poverty.
By gradually raising Missouri’s minimum wage to $12 an hour, we can help hard-working people meet their basic needs and take care of their families. At the same time, we will help small businesses by injecting new dollars into the local economy and save taxpayers money by helping low-wage workers become more self-reliant.Take Action
A full time worker earning minimum wage in Missouri makes just $16,000 a year.
This initiative would help over 350,000 Missourians including almost a hundred thousand working parents. These are health care workers, classroom aides, janitors and waitresses who put in an honest day’s work and still struggle to get by.
