Small businesses in little towns throughout rural Missouri would go out of business if this ever passed, which is also the reason it won't.
These "mayors" would be a whole lot better advised to focus on their actual responsibilities like making their cities safer than in trying to cram social policy down people's throats.
Maybe Sly can give her some tips on streetcars, hotels, and airport terminals.
He sure doesn't know much about safe neighborhoods.

^^Of what value is a business that can't pay its workers a living wage?

As long as they pay taxes you get money. So how is it your business?

718 Minimum wage is not social policy, it is economic policy.

637 it seems like they understand pretty well, that is why they are working to change state law through the allowed process. I don't want to jump to conclusions but your comment leads me to believe you have below average reading comprehension or more likely you didn't even read the article.

Yes sir folks "Officials" support the idea of you working 80 hours a week, going without sleep for months, chasing your own checks to the bank and making peanuts to get your business running so you can pay some stoner $15.00 an hour to cram burgers and napkins in a sack. What great leaders we have in these metros.

Byron you commenting on working people or what they are paid is beyond stupid as hell. You're a mooch and have been all your life walking around thinking the world owes you a huge favor. You know nothing about running a business probably because your too stupid for one. But you sure think you should be allowed to tell business owners how they should run their business. While some pay rates per hour works in a larger city, out in rural areas it won't. But I would guess a drop out like you wouldn't know anything about that.
