St. Louis is going through a similar legal fight right now. Seems silly to me that the city's standing is that they should be allowed to write this legislation and raise minimum wage as it is a matter of 'local concern.' And the Missouri Chamber of Commerce (ie Big Business in the State) sued saying it wasn't. Should be resolved this year in the appellate courts.
