Minimum Wage and Ethics Reform under Attack in Jefferson City

In November Missourians came together and voted overwhelmingly to raise our state’s minimum wage, to curtail lobbyist influence in Jefferson City, and to institute a fair, non-partisan redistricting plan for our state legislature.

Now all of these reforms are under attack in the General Assembly. The legislature has already changed Missouri’s Sunshine Law so that it can continue to do our business in secret and bills are moving to exempt some workers from minimum wage protection. Lawmakers are also threatening to undermine the non-partisan redistricting plan that 62% of Missourians approved last year.

We need to make sure that the General Assembly hears and respects the voice of Missouri’s voters.

Use this link to urge your senator to to vote no on SB 10, which is attack on the minimum wage we passed in November.

Continue to follow Missouri Jobs with Justice on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about our fight to maintain our 2018 victories.


Amendment 1 & Prop B Passed!

The journey to raise the minimum wage and to clean up Missouri politics became reality on November 6th! Missourians were fed up with politicians being more accountable to special interests and corporations than to working people in this state. It was a long road, but it was all worth it when Amendment 1 and Proposition B passed!

THANK YOU! To everyone who carried a petition, knocked doors, made phone calls, signed a petition, chipped in or talked to their friends and family on behalf of these campaigns, it worked. This was a grassroots effort, with over 1200 people working together. This victory was only made possible by the hard work and dedication of our incredible volunteers.

We won on Prop A in August and now on Prop B and Amendment 1. We are sending a clear message: When we put working families first in Missouri, WE WIN!

CLEAN Missouri & Raise Up Missouri Qualified

It’s official, CLEAN Missouri and Raise Up Missouri have officially qualified and will be on the ballot in November!  Because of the hard work of volunteers across the state, Missouri is changing and will raise its minimum wage and begin to get big money out of politics.

Our volunteers gathered an astounding 81,000 signatures for CLEAN Missouri and 55,000 signatures for Raise Up Missouri.  This was the largest volunteer signature gathering program in Missouri history!

Now we begin the important work of educating and engaging voters across the state leading up to the election.
