Missouri law requires employers who violate wage laws to pay double.

Missouri wage statutes require that any employer who pays less than the wages required by law must pay “the full amount of the wage rate and and additional equal amount as liquidated damages.” R.S.Mo. 290.527. Missouri employees are entitled to at least the full minimum wage and applicable overtime rate even if the employee agreed to take a lower wage. Id. Missouri employment law adopts the same exemptions from minimum wage and overtime requirements that exist under federal law. R.S.Mo. 290.505.
