Commentary

Adam Soltani
According to the website for the United States Senate, “Upon taking office, senators-elect must swear or affirm that they will ‘support and defend the Constitution.’” Our elected officials are not only voted upon by people within our state to represent Oklahoma but are also expected to protect and defend rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Commentary

The motivation behind a citizen-led drive to raise the minimum wage in Oklahoma City is simple: Neither the federal government nor the Oklahoma Legislature has deemed the issue important enough to help hardworking people make a decent, livable wage.
