It is interesting to know that North Carolina state government added 34,824 full-time equivalent positions from 2001 through 2009. Keep in mind that in December 2001 there have been 282,135 jobs. On the other hand, in December 2009 there were 316,959. Believe it or not, at the same time, the private sector lost 50,000 jobs. This is definitely a significant number. Keep in mind that more and more of the states resources are being controlled by the State. Anyway, the state budget is facing massive deficits.
