ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - For a second day in a row, business groups and the City of St. Louis squared off in court over the city’s recently enacted minimum wage law. The business groups wanted Judge Steven Ohmer to impose a temporary restraining order to stop implementation of the city’s minimum wage law that is slated to take effect in October.

That ordinance would bring wages for low income workers in St. Louis to $8.25 per hour in October and gradually raise the rate to $11 per hour by 2018.

Today’s hearing ended no injunction put in place and another hearing on the issued scheduled for October.
