Missouri Supreme Court declines to rehear minimum wage dispute
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KTVI) – The Missouri Supreme Court announced Tuesday it would not rehear the case involving St. Louis’ push to raise the minimum wage to $11 by 2018.
The state’s high court ruled last month that the city had the authority to make the increase, after a lower court ruled in favor of business groups who argued that state law mandates a $7.65 wage.
How and exactly when the city will make the move to $11 is still unclear. A spokesman for Mayor Krewson did not have a comment Tuesday night.
