McCaskill and Nixon support minimum wage increase
Sen. Claire McCaskill: "I know that the middle class is the economic engine of this country. Without a fair minimum wage that keeps pace with higher costs of living, our middle class will continue to shrink, not grow...I support an increase in the minimum wage as one of the many ways we can continue to get our economic recovery back on track."
Gov. Jay Nixon: "I've always been a supporter of the minimum wage. I think the people of this state have shown time and again on the ballot that they support it...I think that continuing to make sure that that reflects the additional costs that families have is a solid step forward for Missouri."
