    Missouri's governor is reducing the St. Louis minimum wage from $10 hourly to $7.70 hourly.

    The way republicans see it, something is better than nothing. This is why the Federal Minimum Wage should be at least $10 or more, so the working stiff doesn't have to work 2 or 3 jobs just to make ends meet, and so republican governors can't turn the clock back on hard working Americans, which is their intent, they want people working for less money. Next up, how about reintroducing a child labor force as proposed by Newt Gingrich?

    Perhaps they didn't understand the word minimum. It's pathetic. The mentality is to protect businesses. Shame there's not equal concerns for protecting people. What's next a sub new minimum wage ? You look hungry and it's a job with minimal requirements. Do I hear 4.00 per hour, No... how about 4.50 per hour and a meal. Just barely above slavery.

    On I believe Meet The Press, they were discussing that you can't take something away from voters that they were given, Missouri's governor is proving that isn't the case, he just did. Medicare and Medicaid on their shortlist?
