Mary Fallin signed into law a measure that would prohibit Oklahoma cities from increasing their minimum wage.
Attention: Middle-Class and Low Wage Earners, Republicans do not care about you. Continue to vote to keep GOP Politicians in Office at your own peril and that of your children!
The Republican Governor’s decision to sign the bill into law once again demonstrates the GOP’s contempt towards American workers. Fallin and Oklahoma GOP lawmakers have no interest in seeing wages improve nor are they concerned if workers have to take time off without compensation due to illness.
Proponents of the measure argue that raising the minimum wage will hurt business in the state of Oklahoma, but the reality is that some of America’s most successful businesses are based in city’s with higher wages and more productive work forces like Seattle, San Jose, and San Francisco.
