Oklahoma City Initative Drive to Raise the Minimum Wage

The Central Oklahoma Labor Federation is leading the charge on a petition to raise Oklahoma City’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.

Supporting the initiative at City Hall Thursday was Mark Faulk, candidate for House District 88, Senator Connie Johnson, Councilman and Mayoral Candidate Dr. Ed Shadid, and local NAACP President Garland Pruitt.

“My name is Ron and I work at Carl’s Jr.,” read attorney David Slane in a note after filing the petition, “I have to worry about rent, groceries, electric, a car, insurance and there’s nothing left after taxes.”
