I have never been as upset over anything in your newspaper as I was when I saw the Dec. 3 editorial “Starting with a stretch.”
Yes, in the late 1980s Gov. Pat McCrory faced the unfortunate consequence of losing his job; something millions of Americans face over their professional careers. Yes, he was able to reapply and accept a job at his former employer after a few weeks.
However, the fact is that his job was eliminated, and for a time period he felt the stress and uncertainty of where his income would come from. Can you not understand that unemployment is difficult no matter if it is one day or one year? Good grief!
Unlike your editors, I commend McCrory for the hard work he did for his employer and his ability to be rehired when another position came up that he was qualified for. Perhaps you don’t understand the real world? Perhaps you don’t understand that we should all strive to work in a fashion that our employer would say, yes, I would rehire that person!
It’s a privilege to have a job. We should all praise McCrory for his work ethic.
