Description

The News & Observer reports on the ability of state employees in proximity to power to get raises. Though the system is supposed to be equitable, legislative staff, aides to the governor and highway patrolmen were among those who saw raises in higher proportions to other state employees. Using public records and databases the News & Observer was able to show conclusively what everyone knew to be anecdotally true. As a result of the story a commission was formed to look at overhauling state personnel laws.
