Campaign to raise Missouri’s minimum wage to $15 an hour confident it will get on the ballot

Associated Press

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri voters have gotten a step closer to getting to decide whether to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. The group behind the effort, Missouri Jobs with Justice, said Wednesday that it turned in nearly double the required number of signatures. Republican Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft’s office must next determine if at least 115,000 or so are valid. The ballot measure would raise the minimum wage from its current $12.30 an hour to $13.75 an hour next year and then to $15 an hour in 2026.
