Time is running out for Gov. McCrory, House Speaker Thom Tillis, and Senate President Pro-Tem Phil Berger to act and keep North Carolina from plunging over the Unemployment Cliff.
With the Governor’s support, the Chamber’s scheme to have unemployed workers pay the price for a deficit created by years of business tax cuts will become law. Meanwhile, McCrory refuses to put his money where his mouth is.
If Governor McCrory is going to put the brakes on a plan that would harm not only inflict permanent pain on jobless workers but threaten our state’s economic recovery, now is the time for him to speak up.
Pat McCrory has been governor of North Carolina for one week, but he has managed to break his promise to clean up Raleigh and keep special interests out of state government, says Progress NC, which has launched a website – www.paytoplaypat.com – to keep score on McCrory’s selling out of North Carolina.
The North Carolina State AFL-CIO is the largest association of local unions and union councils in North Carolina, representing over one-hundred and forty-thousand union members, fighting for good jobs, safe workplaces, workers’ rights, consumer protections, and quality public services on behalf of ALL working people.
