KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri’s minimum wage rate is set to go up again soon.
The state minimum wage will increase to $9.45 an hour beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
The hike is part of a voter-approved plan to gradually raise the minimum wage.
The 2018 plan calls for minimum wages to go up by 85 cents an hour every year until the rate hits $12 an hour in 2023.
