House staff members' raises a slap in the face

Published: December 15, 2013

Regarding “House staff members get pay raises” (News, Dec. 10): What a slap in the face this is to state employees who have to strap on a gun and wear a bulletproof vest to do their jobs (Department of Corrections and state troopers). Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon should sleep well at night knowing they're working to keep him safe while his staffers enjoy their raises. Shame on Shannon!
