Oklahoma Senate takes up tax hike to halt teachers' strike

Oklahoma teachers' strike causes tax hikeThe Oklahoma Senate is set to debate a tax hike package on Friday to raise education funds in the hope of halting a strike by its public school teachers, who are some of the lowest-paid educators in the country.

The strike that started on Monday has affected more than half a million students. It comes after a successful West Virginia strike last month ended with a pay raise and as teachers in other states angry over stagnating wages are considering walk-outs.

The Oklahoma package includes a $20 million internet sales tax, a hotel tax hike expected to generate about another $50 million and a gambling measure that could bring in about another $22 million.
