salary, furlough, and way to save $ for NC

I am not a state employee; but, my husband is. He has worked almost 21 yrs. with the state. Now his salary is being cut .5% per month and probably 10-20 days furlough. Yes, I am thankful he has a job. It is difficult with his full pay check to make ends meet. I'm on medical disability and my monthly check is no where what my check was when I was able to work. I don't understand why only state employees are the only ones being required to fix the budget. Let all NC residents participate. The state can save $ in several ways. State vehicles should be driven home only if the person is on call. Instead of mailing W-2 forms to the employees, place them in an envelope and give to the employee with their check stub at the end of Jan. That will save a lot stamp money. Mail only to the employees that are no longer working with the state. Stop taxing cigarettes. Start taxing ALCOHOL. These are just a few things that can save and/or make money for the NC.
