St. Louis American Reports on Winston Calvert's Court Arguments in Minimum Wage Lawsuit

The St. Louis American reported on the court arguments concerning the minimum wage ordinance, noting:

Opinions are divided about what the legislation will mean for the case, especially since there’s a clause that states the bill “shall not pre-empt any state law or local minimum wage ordinance requirements in effect on August 28, 2015.”
“I think whether it’s overridden or not, it’s an acknowledgement by the General Assembly that the city of St. Louis had the authority to pass its own local minimum wage ordinance by August 28,” Calvert said. “And that’s what the city did.”
