**Update** – Minimum Wage Ballot Measure Stopped

The Missouri Supreme Court had earlier in the summer rejected a challenge to a minimum wage ballot initiative. On July 31, 2012, the Missouri Supreme Court rejected a challenge to a ballot initiative that would raise the minimum wage to $8.25 per hour. However, the Missouri Secretary of State ruled that the ballot measure on the minimum wage had failed to secure enough signatures.  As you might imagine, lawsuits have been filed.  We’ll keep you posted.
