On January 1, 2014, employers will need to follow Missouri’s increased minimum wage requirement.
The new minimum wage rate is $7.50 per hour, which is higher than the Federal minimum wage of $7.25.
Missouri is one of the states that uses a cost of living factor to compute any increase or decrease in the minimum wage each year.
