OK-min wage

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill [ht: sm] this past Monday prohibiting any city in the state from establishing mandatory minimum wage and employee benefits, including vacation or sick leave days.

In 2012, 64,000 workers earning the federal minimum wage or less made up 7.2 percent of all hourly paid workers Oklahoma. From 2011 to 2012, the portion of hourly paid workers in Oklahoma who earned at or below the federal minimum wage rose from 6.8 to 7.2 percent. The percentage of workers earning less than the federal minimum rose 1.5 percentage points in 2012 to 3.9 percent, while the share earning exactly the minimum wage fell 1.0 points to 3.3 percent. Oklahoma’s proportion of hourly-paid workers earning at or below the prevailing federal minimum wage ranked third highest among the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
