Minimum Wage Increase

On November 15, 2016, the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations announced that the minimum wage in Missouri will increase to $7.70 per hour effective January 1, 2017. All businesses are required to pay, at minimum, the $7.70 hourly rate, except retail and service businesses whose annual gross sales are less than $500,000. Under state law the minimum wage is calculated annually based on the cost of living as measured by the previous year’s Consumer Price Index (CPI).
