$10 St. Louis minimum wage could begin next week after court declines to reconsider

ST. LOUIS The Missouri Supreme Court has declined to reconsider its ruling from earlier this year upholding St. Louis' proposed $10-an-hour city minimum wage, meaning that wage could go into effect here by next week.

Business groups had sued and won an injunction stopping the 2015 city wage hike, arguing that by setting a cap higher than the state's $7.65 minimum wage would sow regulatory confusion. The state Supreme Court rejected that argument on Feb. 28, ruling that the new city wage could go into effect.

The court's refusal on Tuesday to reconsider that order effectively ends the issue.

The ordinance sets a $10-an-hour minimum wage in the city this year, climbing to $11 in 2018.
