St. Louis aldermen to again debate minimum wage increase

From the St. Louis Business Journal

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen will hold a special meeting Tuesday to consider one of several proposals to increase the minimum wage in the city.

Cutting their summer break short, aldermen will discuss a citywide minimum wage of $13 an hour that would become fully effective by 2020, KSDK reports.

Mayor Francis Slay initially had called for a $15 minimum in the city by 2020, but a bill introduced in committee died when Alderman Joe Vaccaro, 23rd Ward,canceled hearings on it. Another bill calling for an $11 minimum was tabled rather than risk defeat when aldermen raised concerns about possible costs.

A bill that would have raised unincorporated St. Louis County’s minimum wage to $15 by 2020 failed to advance in late July.

The state of Missouri’s current minimum wage is $7.65 an hour.
