Plan to raise minimum wage in St. Louis County shelved

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – The St. Louis County Council chose not to take up a proposal to raise the minimum wage Tuesday.

The proposal, introduced by Councilwoman Hazel Erby, would have raised the minimum wage to $10 an hour by 2016 and $15 an hour by 2020.  

Erby told News 4 she was very disappointed that four fellow Democrats did not back the plan.

The current minimum wage in Missouri is $7.65 an hour.
