It's not nearly the $15 an hour that fast-food and retail workers have been fighting for, but Missouri's labor department has increased the state minimum wage. As the new work week begins the department announced late Friday that next year's minimum wage will be $7.50 an hour. That is 15 cents more than the current $7.35 an hour. The increase will make Missouri's wage 25 cents higher than the federal minimum.
