Governor Roy Cooper vetoed both 3.9% and 4.4% teacher pay raises this year. Teachers are just about the only state employees in North Carolina to not get a raise, and Christmas is right around the corner. Sign your name below to join the letter asking for the games to end and teachers to get their raises before the Holiday Season.
Dear Governor Cooper,
Teachers deserve their raise. We do not support this high-stakes game that could very well leave teachers with nothing. Please sign the pay raise passed by the legislature that you previously vetoed so teachers can move on with their Christmas plans and buy gifts for their families.
We do not appreciate teachers being used as political pawns by anybody. They deserve their pay raise just like everybody else. Stop with the games!
