OKC benefits from market wages


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.

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.

News

Ben Felder
In a state in which lawmakers commonly preach local control, the opposite can feel like the status quo to municipal leaders.
