Session Notes: Minimum Wage To Be Set By State Alone
The debate was lengthy, but after a raucous couple of hours the House and Senate both voted to preempt local minimum wages in Missouri in favor of the minimum wage set by the state itself. Show-Me Institute writers have long raised the negative consequences of minimum wage laws and their levels — levels often set by political will rather than good economics. We’ll have more to say later. Congratulations to the reformers.
