$15 per hour minimum wage headed to Kansas City August ballot

A $15 per hour minimum wage plan is officially headed to Kansas City voters in August.

The Kansas City Council agreed Thursday to comply with a Missouri Supreme Court order and put a petition initiative for a higher minimum wage on the August 8 ballot.

The proposal, which was backed by civil rights activists, urban core ministers and other social justice and low-wage worker advocates, calls for boosting the minimum wage to $10 per hour by Sept. 1 and gradually to $15 per hour by 2022.

The current minimum wage is set by the state at $7.70 per hour.
