Minimum wage to raise in 2017

Missouri should be seeing a 5-cent raise on minimum wage this January, bringing it from $7.65 an hour to $7.70.

In 2006, Missourians voted to adjust minimum wage annually to reflect inflation. The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations released the numbers used in the calculations this week, however 2017’s minimum wage will not be announced until fall.
