How Did We Get Here?

How did Oklahoma get in this position?

We work hard to build this great state. Oklahoma’s unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation and our businesses are thriving even in tough times. Yet many working Oklahomans still don’t have financial security or a chance to get ahead. We’re falling behind in many of the core services our citizens and businesses need to reach their full potential.

  1. There is no reason this state pays their teachers the small amount they do. I have worked in both states and took a 21000 dollar cut in pay to be with my family. My son works for a Rock Crusher without a college degree and made 4000 more last year than I did as an educator with over 20 years of experience. That is a crying shame. I love my job but may start to entertain the idea of trying to find a better paying job so that when I retire I can survive. That is A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS. The state and its government are letting down the very people who helped educate them so that they could be in the position they are. Not to mention without educators there would be no doctors, lawyers, police, judges, etc…… I weep for our children because of the lack of support for educators. Teachers care more for their students than they do the money otherwise they would leave the profession.
