I think it's all those low paying jobs. There is no money after the bills to spend anything.

The FED law says you can join a Union in Oklahoma.
I would go with FED, they give you a bigger tax return!

And Oklahoma is about to get bad!

Why shouldn't you have to? Where is it written you shouldn't have to? I have never heard or read that our government guaranteed that a person would not or should not work 2 jobs to get ahead. It's all what a person is willing to take on to make it thru life. Not ever one gets a head start by being gifted money for any reason to start out in the adult world.

You should get 1 educated job instead of 2 uneducated minimum wage jobs that way you can spend time with your loved ones instead of slinging big macks all night.

Put it this way you have 2 minimum wage jobs.
At $6.88 after taxes. You work 40 hours a week there.= 275+ a week pay. Then the next job you work the weekend 3 days 6.88+=$165+ That is $1265+ a month for working 7 days a week, for years & years.
Or make $11 after taxes at Walmart, & make $1760 a month just for 40 HR a week pay!
http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/retail/index....

Also not having a union & working for the lowest pay, pulls down every ones pay around you.
Like if Walmart payed $12 an HR lowes, Homeland would have to raise the pay to keep the good workers. They all would go to work at Walmart.
All you would have would be people willing to work for $6.88 an HR after taxes. Making METH would pay better than that! What kind of workers would they get?
When was the last time a middle class worker worked at a minimum wage job? So will they get any workers at all for $6.88 NO. Raise the pay!!!!

Note look at this town! There is nothing for the poor, just all high $ stuff. No all you can eat Cicispizza! We need that here! No they don't want that! GREED!

When my husband and I started our married life in 1961 we both had full time jobs. He took on an extra job for extra money to buy our first home. Bought it in 1962. Started having a family of 3 boys and buy 1968 we were building a new home on an acreage. Raised 3 sons there and put all 3 sons thru college. Then we decided to build a home here on 7 acreas and funished it in 2003 totally paid for. We did not work the extra jobs forever but did so until we got a stronge footing financially. There is no shame of having to work hard to get ahead. We had nothing handed to us. Our sons all have good jobs but will take on remodeling on the side. This is giving them money to pay for their college education without taking out student loans or borrowing money. So what is wrong with that? To many people now day expect to many things to be handed to them. They need to get off their lazy butts and do something for themselves.

You cant get ahead now! You just trade things off. Like your car to get more money to pay the rent.

"Expect to many things to be handed to them."
Yes they deserve it, look what gets taken away from them!
ALEC http://alecexposed.org/wiki/ALEC_Exposed
They keep the pay low! The state is a right to work for low wages state. The state is telling you, that you cant do better for your kids. Can't join a union for better pay.
Low taxes = less food stamps, less money to cover some of the
high rent.

It's the same failed Republican low road. It does not work!
Let's not do it again!

I will admit there was not a job shortage when we started out. But because time are hard now that means people are going to have to adjust and do the work at hand until things start making a turn around. But saying they will not work at all is not going to get it for them. By the way we were in Oklahoma when we started out and are still here.

It's only bad because we make it bad.
We need to vote for people that want unions, not ALEC!

Make a copys of the Berkeley study and get everyone to mail it to Walmart corp about Muskogee's pay.
http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/retail/index....

Tell business owners about these.
http://www.businessforafairminimumwage.org
http://www.businessforsharedprosperity.org

Walmart makes $419 billion in sales, thats about $58 for the 7 billion people in the world, just for Walmart alone. Sure taxing the rich or paying better will kill jobs! NOT!

Because some children may have to ride the bus over one hour.*sarcasm* I saw that on one of the boards.
Consolidation frightens people in rural areas. My thought is they fear themselves and their children being exposed to those inner city kids in Purcell or Pauls Valley.*not all sarcasm*
It becomes a control issue. Parents can control the environment in a school of 100 students and their children and themselves can be the large fish in a little tank. The State Superintendent needs to make that unpopular decision and consolidate. One county Superintendent and one Principal per school would save enough for pay raises for the teachers. Some of the less populated counties could have three counties per one Superintendent.
Throwing money and not making real change for education in Oklahoma has never been successful.
Many of the problems we are facing now across the county is NCLB has come full circle. The reason schools nationwide are not doing a good job is we lowered expectations as well as standards. By leaving no child behind we slowed it all down.
This is the most asinine thing I have ever heard. 1 couny supt and rural areas get 1 supt per 3 counties? You need to educate yourself on what a supt does.

A driver on a school bus, could not control a child, so had him set on the steps, where the children enter the bus. So the child set on the steps and the driver was going about 45 miles an hour, hit a bump and the door flew open, and the child fell out of this moving school bus. He surivied w/ only broken bones, scrapes and bruises, thank God. The school is saying the door malifuctioned, and that was the cause if this terrible tragedy?????
