The new year means an increase to Missouri's minimum wage, but not all business owners are on board. Starting Jan. 1, the minimum wage will increase from $7.85 an hour to $8.60.

    Boycott Every Damn Business that closes because of this Minimum Wage increase!
    Show your support!
    C'mon, it'll be easy!

    1. How can you boycott a closed business? Think it through simpleton.

  4. Let the robots have it, and we can all go home after a 30 hour week. It's time to allow the workers to participate in productivity gains.
