Greg Bruhn: Down to ‘seat warmers’

Getting down to

‘seat warmers’

Gov. Pat McCrory and his allies believe in the law of supply and demand when it comes to state employees and teachers. As long as qualified individuals keep applying for openings within the state pool of employees, there will be no raises and more concessions will be taken away.

When only “seat warmers” are available for vacated state positions, then perhaps conditions will improve. Unfortunately, by then the damage will have been done.
