Endorse Today: Raise Missouri's Minimum Wage
Who are we?
Raise Up Missouri is a coalition of business leaders, community partners, working families, and faith organizations unified in their belief that no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty and struggle to make ends meet for his or her family. Endorse us today to help us gradually raise the wage to $12 by 2023 for hardworking Missourians.
Together, the coalition will fight to:
● Raise the minimum wage to $8.60 by 2019
● Gradually increase it by 85 cents a year thereafter until it is $12 in 2023
● Ensure working families don’t fall behind again by increasing the minimum wage with the cost of living each year after 2023
● Increase penalties for employers that break the law by paying less than minimum wage
