As Oklahomans open a can or bottle of their favorite cold one this Memorial Day, a new economic impact survey shows just how much support the industry provides.
The survey shows the industry directly supported 8,650 jobs, paid more than $282 million in wages and had a total direct economic output of more than $1 billion in Oklahoma during 2018.
Cheers to that.
Expanding the parameters to include indirect economic impact, the survey estimates the industry supports nearly 19,000 jobs, more than $800 million in wages and a total economic output of nearly $2.9 billion in Oklahoma alone.
