Missouri Increases Minimum Wage in 2018



Missouri is joining the rank of other states that will be implementing minimum wage increases on January 1, 2018.  The Missouri minimum wage is based upon annual inflation adjustments which are tied to the Consumer Price Index.  The 2018 minimum wage will be $7.85 per hour for general workers and $3.925 per hour for tipped workers.  Tipped workers must receive at least 50% of the standard minimum wage, however, the combination of tips and wages must at least equal the $7.85 minimum wage.  Overtime at the rate of 1.5 times the hourly rate applies to all time worked over 40 hours.

The minimum wage applies to all workers except retail and service businesses with annual gross revenues of less than $500,000.
