I am not an employee of

I am not an employee of CFPUA, I am actually an employee of New Hanover County. I happen to be very close with several employees of CFPUA and can assure you that someone getting an $8,000 increase when going to the Authority from the City is very few and far between, if that even happened. The people that I know got maybe $1/hr raise.

I am grateful that I have a job, that's why I'm still here after 18 1/2 years and having to give up part of my salary for several years in a row due to furlough days. As far as your son and the others out of work, I work at a county department which sees many people come through the door everyday who have hit rock bottom. There are jobs out there, you just have to be willing to go after them and take what you can get and move on from there. If the government didn't supplement UIB benefits for such an extended period of time, people wouldn't get so comfortable sitting at home everyday drawing money for doing nothing and they would put more effort into finding a job.
