N.C. is not a good place to live if you have to wo


Star Rating 12/8/2010
I have lived in N.C. all my life.Unfortunatly stuck here because of my wife who refuses to move to a better state. N.C. is a slave state always has been always will be. We have some of the lowest wages and some of the highest taxes in the country, so if you want to accumulate wealth forget N.C. That is why we have third world property prices. The only Thing N.C. is good for is retirement. N.C. use to be a lot better back 20 to 30 years ago. Back when they didn't have zonning. If you didn't want to work for slave wages all you had to do was go right out side of town and buy a cheap building lot and build a store or service station or any kind of business and you would do well, now however with zonning the local governments have effectivly blocked most people from going into business for themselves. Now you have to buy in a special zonning district set up for business and pay a half million dollars for the lot then another quarter of a milliion for the building. Most people are bankrupt before they even get started and the local government officals know this, its why they set up zonning to keep out most of their competition and to keep wages and property prices down so they can have a smorgeshboard of opportunity. There is a good old boy fachist system in place in most of N.C. where only certain people are allowed to make any money, all the rest of us are supposed to be their slaves. I am a business owner here and have seen local government get tighter and tighter on rules and regulations to the point that a lot of the factorys and businesses finally got tired of it and closed up shop and left for good for better states too. According to a trucking company I use to work for 40% of all U.S. corperations refuse to do busness in N.C. now. I myself even though I own my own business am trying to sell out all of my holdings except for the ones which are making money in N.C. and take my money elsewhere too. I ask the army corps of engineers in Wilmington N.C. about a business I want to go into and they told me that N.C. is one of the strictest states in the country now. So take it from some one who knows and has 50 years of living experience in N.C. If you need to work for a living N.C. is a very lousy choice for a place to live why all these articals on the internet are out there saying N.C. is the plase to go is beyond me.I myself am moving out when I can. In Davidson county where I live according to the local paper the average wage is 8 dollars an hour, far belo

NC is horrible. The city I live in the my girlfriend's brother assaulted her. She filed a report to the magistrate. The magistrate did not even take action about my girlfriends report. When her father abused her at her former residence and when she called the cops and they went to the house and the cops talked to her about the abuse, the cops didn't even file a police report about the times she was abused. Law enforcement in NC is messed up big time.

Couldn't agree more Jim....Me and my spouse are moving out of NC by the end of the year. Tired of working for 10 years and still making new hire pay. It's a grave insult to my skills and ability and should be a "Crime". Anytime someone tells me how much they love living in NC now I tell them, if you like being a "Slave" to your job then "More Power To You".
