Missouri Supreme Court Upholds City of St. Louis Minimum Wage Law
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), March 1, 2017 - The City of St. Louis has won the right for thousands of minimum-wage workers to earn an increase. The Missouri Supreme Court ruling, issued February 28, 2017, upheld the City's ordinance that establishes a minimum wage of $11 per hour by 2018.
The Missouri Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the State's minimum wage does not preempt the City of St. Louis from establishing a higher minimum wage. The Court explains:
"...Plaintiffs are incorrect that the Missouri minimum wage law is an affirmative authorization to pay no more than the state minimum wage. To the contrary, it simply sets a floor below which an employee cannot be paid... To conclude that the law was intended to protect employers from ever being required to pay a higher wage is at odds with the statute's recognized purpose, which is to ameliorate the "'unequal bargaining power as between employer and employee' and to 'protect the rights of those who toil.'"
"We are very happy with the Supreme Court Justices' decision to uphold our minimum wage increase," Mayor Francis G. Slay said. "The increase will help lift hard working men and women out of poverty so that they will be able to better provide for themselves and their families. There is dignity and value in having a job -- even more so in one that helps a worker put a roof over her head, food on the table, and save a little for a child's future college education or an emergency medical need."
In the absence of the legal challenge, the City's minimum wage currently would be $10 per hour. The law, signed by Mayor Slay on August 28, 2015, was designed to phase in a graduated minimum wage on the following schedule:
$8.25 on October 15, 2015
$9 on January 1, 2016
$10 on January 1, 2017
$11 on January 1, 2018
"It is fair to give businesses a reasonable grace period to adjust to the new minimum wage rate," Mayor Slay said. "We will spend the coming week talking to local business leaders to prepare to implement the increase."
Once a new implementation schedule has been established, enforcement of the law will be complaint driven. A business that does not follow the City's established ordinance will be prosecuted in Municipal Court. It also may be subject to revocation of its business license and occupancy permit.
Alderman Shane Cohn, 25th Ward, sponsored the minimum wage legislation. In response to today's ruling, said, "This is a proud day for the City of St. Louis and the thousands of workers who will benefit from this decision. Anyone working a full-time job should be able to afford the basic necessities of life; especially food, housing, transportation, and education. I look forward to working with Mayor Slay and the next administration to implement the law passed by my colleagues and affirmed by the Missouri Supreme Court."
"Ideally, the federal government and state government would have addressed this issue by now. But, they haven't, so we were forced to do so," Mayor Slay said. "The City also extends its gratitude to the Dowd Bennett law firm, which volunteered its time to represent the City of St. Louis at no charge from the original trial through the Supreme Court decision."
