After an over two-year fight, the minimum wage in St. Louis city rose to $10 on May 5 and will rise to $11 dollars on January 1, 2018. If you work in St. Louis city and make less than $10 an hour, your wages should have gone up to $10 an hour.
It’s the activism of SEIU Local 1 members that pushed St. Louis to raise the wage for working people, and raising the minimum wage is the first step in making our economy better for working families. By keeping our union strong, we make progress together for a brighter future.
If you have any questions about the minimum wage increase, please call the Member Resource Center at (877) 233-8880, Monday – Friday, between 9am and 5pm. We want to work with you to make sure you can receive the raises you’re owed.
Local 1 janitor Cynthia Sanders spoke with Fox 2 News about how raising the wage will boost our communities. Click here to check it out!
