Missouri Minimum Wage to Increase Next Month

Date: December 01, 2021

The state minimum wage will increase to $11.15 an hour on Jan. 1 under Proposition B, which was voted into law in 2018.

Exceptions will include:

  • Tipped employees, who must be paid at least half of the minimum wage.
  • Businesses with annual sales of less than $500,000.
  • Most agricultural workers.

Local governments may have their own minimum wages that are higher.

In November 2018, voters approved Proposition B, which increases the statewide minimum wage from $7.75 to $12 over the course of five years. Missouri’s minimum wage will reach $12 an hour in 2023. The federal minimum wage remains at $7.25 an hour.
