Notes: Estimated workforce describes employed ACS respondents ages 16 and older for whom a valid hourly wage can be determined, and who reported working in the city of St. Louis, regardless of their place of residence. Directly affected workers are those that would otherwise have had hourly wages below the specified wage value. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
