Commentary

Mark Costello
Nearly 20 years ago, a 17-year-old approached me looking for a job. I offered him a minimum-wage job, thinking I was doing him a favor. Before his 22nd birthday, he was the president of my company’s office in England with 50 people reporting to him. Before his 26th birthday, he was a millionaire.

Commentary

David Slane
The motivation behind a citizen-led drive to raise the minimum wage in Oklahoma City is simple: Neither the federal government nor the Oklahoma Legislature has deemed the issue important enough to help hardworking people make a decent, livable wage.

Minimum wage isn’t a “market wage”


Bob Waldrop
Labor Commissioner Mark Costello’s argument against the minimum wage (Commentary, "OKC benefits from market cages,” March 26, Oklahoma Gazette) rests on a false premise. We do not have a free market for labor. The wages of low income workers are not “market wages.” Our economy is tightly regulated to favor capital over labor and to suppress wages.

Letters to the Editor

Emmett "Bud" Welch
I agree with those who feel that Oklahoma is very much in the wrong when it comes to hiding basic facts about its plans for lethal injection from the public.
