The minimum wage in Missouri will go up on Jan. 1.
But the increase will be the lowest in more than five years.
After five years of voter-mandated 85-cent annual increases, Missouri's minimum wage will go up 30 cents -- a level determined by the increase in the cost of living. That will bring Missouri's minimum to $12.30 per hour.
