Don't let Missouri Legislators Repeal Your Minimum Wage!
Save Our Raise! 76% of Missourians Voted for a Raise in 2006!
HB 61 passed in the House. We have to make sure our State Senators hear from us!
This page is for Missourians who know every penny counts!
In 2006, 76.4% of Missourians voted to pass Proposition B to raise the minimum wage in Missouri. Attached to the bill was a Cost Of Living Adjustment (COLA)- toprotect our most vulnerable workers by annually raising the minimum wage with inflation.
Every year since 2006, Missouri legislators have tried to strip our minimum wage in some way: tipped employees, the COLA, or young workers have all been targeted by the Pro-Business, Anti-Worker lobbyists.
Now, House Bill 61 and Senate Bill 110 threaten to repeal the Minimum Wage that YOU voted for- by removing the annual cost of living increase. That means when the economy recovers, our lowest paid workers will fall further behind every year.
Tell your representatives that every penny counts!

We need to raise $1000 to ensure minimum wage workers can get to Jefferson City to tell legislators what this cut means to them. So far we've raised $930!
