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.
