Government Jobs Untouched by the Great Recession
By Don Carrington
RALEIGH — Public sector employment levels in North Carolina have been stable since the start of the recession in December 2007. It would take a loss of 63,000 government jobs to match the nearly 9 percent net loss that has occurred in the private sector during that time.

Today’s Opinions

Easley and Edwards
Perhaps being a self-made politician is dangerous says Scott Mooneyham. When you need very few helping hands on the way to the top, it becomes too easy to believe that the rules don’t apply to you.

GOP catches on fast
Rob Christensen says that you may or may not like their results, but you have to tip your hat to Phil Berger and Thom Tillis’ legislative craftsmanship.

Shifting responsibility
Paul O’Connor says that if North Carolina increasingly shifts public-school financing responsibility to counties and tells UNC campuses to find their own money, legislators will lose control over both.
