Petitions circulating that would raise minimum wage in Missouri

(KTRS) – Mayor Francis Slay is moving ahead with a plan to raise the minimum wage in the city of St. Louis.

Missouri voters may get a chance to weigh-in on hike to minimum wage statewide. Three initiative petitions can begin collecting signatures after the Secretary of State approved them for circulation.

The petitions need to be signed by at least 5 percent of legal voters in six of the state’s eight congressional districts to make it onto a ballot. All three petitions propose increasing the state’s minimum wage.

For 2015 the minimum wage is $7.65 an hour in Missouri. The petitions propose upping that to $9 per hour. One would increase that $1 a year until 2023, when it reaches $15 an hour. The other two would increase the minimum wage $1 a year until it reaches $11 or $12.
