Oklahoma Leaders Split Over Bill Banning Cities From Setting Own Minimum Wage

With national leaders fighting over whether the government should raise the minimum wage or not, Oklahoma leaders are aiming to take matters into their own hands, according to affiliate station KFOR – Channel 4.

The legislation in question is reportedly shooting for the goal of keeping all towns in Oklahoma on the same page.

KFOR reported that Governor Mary Fallin recently signed legislation that stops cities and towns from increasing the minimum wage above that of the state rate.

Currently, Oklahoma’s state minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.
