$1,200 was more than a month of Oklahoma minimum wage
With a minimum wage set at $7.25 per hour, Oklahomans working 40 hours per week at minimum wage should be expected to bring home about $1,160 every month. If the CARES Act’s $1,200 wasn’t enough to get them through, maybe Oklahomans should get a second or third job. Especially since a single, childless adult needs to make about $10.94 per hour to make ends meet in this state.
Life insurance policies should start paying out soon
By our state leaders’ response to the pandemic so far, it seems more likely that Oklahomans are going to receive a life insurance policy payout than any kind of support from our government anytime soon.
Oklahomans are just going to blow it
If we give Oklahomans another stimulus check, they’re only going to blow it on Joe Exotic-inspired tattoos, take-out Thai food, virtual concerts, and other frivolous expenditures that fund Oklahoma small businesses and stimulate the local economy.
Stitt has made it through the pandemic just fine
After surviving COVID-19 himself, Governor Stitt has showed us that anyone can survive this pandemic, as long as you have a job that allows you to work from home for at least two weeks, full healthcare, and government-funded housing.
