WASHINGTON -- Minimum wage employees in 13 states, including Missouri, will see a small raise New Year's Day.

While four states passed new wages earlier this year, nine of those states, including Missouri, are following state laws that require automatic annual increases to keep pace with the rising cost of living.

Missouri's new minimum wage will be $7.50 an hour starting on January 1st, 2014.
