Living Wage Registry highlights some employers
The City has created a Living Wage Registry that highlights employers who choose to help raise living standards for their employees by paying wages higher than the national and state minimums. Businesses that register will receive a distinctive sticker that can be prominently displayed for their customers and employees. KCMO voters last August approved a measure to set the City’s minimum wage at $10 an hour, gradually increasing to $15 per hour by 2022. The roadblock to that measure, however, is that state law prohibits cities from creating a minimum wage different than the one used in the rest of Missouri.
