Everyone in Oklahoma benefits from the hard work and service of our firefighters, teachers, law enforcement officers, and many other public employees. That’s why we need to make sure that Oklahomans who go into public service can count on a secure retirement.
In recent years, out-of-state special interests have funded attacks on our public workers and their retirement security. Gutting Oklahoma’s public pensions could force thousands of Oklahomans to retire into poverty. It could also cost taxpayers billions of dollars in expensive transition fees.
The good news is that we can fix this by ending sweetheart deals to the wealthiest and the powerful. We can make government and our budgets work for working people again. Oklahoma will be stronger when the workers we count on—firefighters, teachers, nurses, corrections officers, and other public servants—can count on a secure retirement. Keep Oklahoma’s Promises fights for retirement security for first responders, teachers and public sector employees.
