It pays to be on the
governor’s campaign staff in North Carolina. Governor
McCrory gave jobs paying more than $80,000 to two of his
20-something helpers, barely out of college. Each
of the kids got a raise of $22,000-23,000 after a few
months in state government. Teachers must work 15 years to make
$40,000. Teachers in North Carolina are among the worst paid in the
nation. Teachers got no raises.
