State employees suffer

My husband and I are both State employees in the education system, though we are staff, not faculty, so we are losing income on both sides. I make barely over $30k, Gov. Perdue's "cut off" figure for additional paycuts and furloughs. In spite of these cuts, our insurance costs have increased- deductible doubled, dependent coverage price increased, co-pays increased, etc. Our child is in college thinking about becoming a teacher and we are encouraging her NOT TO become one, though we think teaching is one of the most important jobs. Maybe we should look at some of the higher salaries for additional funding needs, like people who make over $100k- maybe they could kick in a slightly higher percentage. And if MARY EASLEY's employment contract is renewed in the new fiscal year starting July 1, we should all strike!
