Minimum Wage Increase Takes Effect

The $0.85 per hour minimum wage increase was passed by Missouri voters in 2018 as part of Proposition B.

The new minimum takes wages from $8.40/hr to $9.45/hr. Eventually the state's minimum wage will increase to $12/hr by 2023.

Light snow, or flurries with a transition to light rain is possible for northeast Missouri and northeast Kansas Monday. Less than a 1/2" of snowfall is expected. A fairly substantial warm up is projected for Wednesday. Then a cold front will work its way through the region Wednesday night with cooler weather behind it for the end of the week.
