About

WageUpOKC is working to raise the minimum wage by partnering with privately owned businesses so that all working families can live above the poverty line.

The Minimum wage in Oklahoma hasn’t been raised in more than a decade. That’s where we come in.

WageUpOKC is a group of high school students dedicated to raising the minimum wage in Oklahoma, one business at a time. Over the next four years, we plan to partner with more than 200 businesses by May 2022. After talking to many experts around Oklahoma City, the WageUpOKC team discovered the minimum wage of $7.25 in Oklahoma was far too low to support average family households.

The livable wage we push for is $12/hour.

$12/hour allows a family with at least one full-time worker to be “housing stable,” or able to afford and sustain housing.
