Comments on Increasing the Minimum Wage in Missouri
This year, the Missouri Secretary of State has already received 24 initiative petitions to raise the state’s minimum wage. If any of these proposals receive the required support to be placed on the ballot, Missouri voters could have the final say on the issue come November 2024. Over the past fifteen years, the Show-Me Institute has published numerous reports on the potential impacts of raising the minimum wage in Missouri. Last week, I submitted comments to the secretary of state’s office on twelve of the current proposals. Those comments can be read via the link below.
