Description

An investigation by the Raleigh News & Observer reveals that some state employees get larger raises than others, despite that the pay raise system "is supposed to be equitable. People in proximity to power score big raises, such as legislative staff or key aides to the governor. Others, like the state highway patrol, use their political influence to imbed big annual raises in the state budget, regardless of what raises other state employees receive. And there are other employees outside the purview of the executive branch who win disproportionate raises every year, such as court and legislative employees."
