At our September sales meeting we watched a video from the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. It was full of positive information and visually showed the best Oklahoma City has to offer. We are all lucky and blessed that we aren’t suffering economically like so many of our fellow Americans.
What I found most interesting was three of our largest employers are Tinker(no surprise there),FAA, and OU but where does there payroll come from? It’s taxes, the federal government you know that thing that’s so bad, the problem not the solution. Now I realize that there are lots of things that need to be corrected within the federal government but is it such a bad thing when it’s what really feeds us and keeps our economy going?
I know no one likes to pay taxes but it’s just part of what makes a country work. So the next time you want to complain about taxes or the government or that 2% of Americans might get a tax hike remember that’s where a huge part of Oklahoma City’s paychecks are generated from. As Realtors just how many of us would get to enjoy this career without those paychecks?
