The bill summary:

This bill repeals the incremental increase to the state minimum wage.

Really?

Last November, the results on the initiative to raise the minimum wage in Missouri:

State of Missouri – General Election, November 06, 2018
Official Results
As announced by the Board of State Canvassers on November 30, 2018

Proposition B
3256 of 3256 Precincts Reported

YES 1,499,002 62.338%
NO 905,647 37.662%

The right wingnut majority in the General Assembly will pass HB 858 because they believe they can get away with it.

“@&%$ Missouri voters” is it.
