MO minimum wage officially increasing

The calendar turning Wednesday means Missouri’s minimum wage rate has officially increased.

The minimum wage increased today by 85-cents to $9.45 an hour.

Pay for workers receiving tips must also total at least the same hourly wage.

The law applies to private employers – not government workers.

The hike is part of a voter-approved plan to gradually boost the minimum wage by 85 cents an hour each year until the rate reaches 12 dollars an hour in 2023.
