You probably read about the raises that House Speaker Thom Tillis gave his staff. It is not the only salary adjustment that Tillis supports this year.

The GOP budget limits how much executives with the N.C. Partnership for Children can make to $80,000 a year and limits the directors of local Smart Start offices to $60,000.

Among the raises Tillis granted recently were $12,000 hikes to his policy advisers. They now make $82,000 a year, more than anybody at Smart Start.

The only thing more ridiculous is that the 25 percent raise Tillis gave his Chief of Staff Charles Thomas brings his salary to $150,000. That is more than Governor Perdue makes.
