St. Louis American Covers Winston Calvert's Legal Opinion Supporting the Minimum Wage Ordinance

The St. Louis American reported that: 

In a legal memo provided to St. Louis Public Radio, Winston Calvert, the city attorney, argued that while a state pre-emption “forbids a conflict with state law, it does not prohibit extra regulations at the municipal level.” Calvert also wrote the fact that St. Louis possesses the same powers as charter counties “gives the city broad authority to regulate business conduct that impacts the health, welfare, and well being of those who live and work here."
