St. Louis Minimum Wage to Revert

Gov. Eric Greitens says he will let a bill repealing a St. Louis minimum wage become law without his signature.

The decision announced last Friday by Greitens means St. Louis’ $10-an-hour minimum wage that has been in place since early May will come to an end Aug. 28 when new Missouri laws take effect.

The minimum wage in St. Louis had been scheduled to rise to $11 in January under the local ordinance passed in 2015. That’s significantly higher than Missouri’s minimum wage of $7.70 an hour.
