RALEIGH Gov. Pat McCrory gave his cabinet secretaries pay hikes as large as $13,200, far more than anything afforded to typical state employees in recent years.
The Republican’s cabinet makes a combined $1.1 million – an 8 percent increase from his Democratic predecessor.
“I’m trying to make it at least where they can afford to live while running multibillion-dollar departments,” McCrory said in an interview.
