Ms benefited the state, according to
its supporters, but critics argue that
increased access to liquor has created
a host of problems.
In 1978, the citizens of Mecklen
burg County became the first in the
state to allow liquor-by-the-drink.
Nine of North Carolina's 100 counties

to anti-liquor forces. To Rep. Coy
Privette, a Republican from Cabarrus
County who is also a Baptist minister

problems created by liquor-by-the-drink
far outweigh the rewards.
"Every prediction we made 10
years ago has come into being,"
Privette said. "We're not going to get
serious about the war on drugs until
we get serious about dealing with our

Privette said liquor-by-the-drink
led to an increase in drunken driving,
creating the push for the Safe Roads
Act in 1983, which sharpened penal
ties for drunk drivers.
Many of the state's conservative
Christians agree with Privette.

Although Gov. Jim Martin's
administration can boast of low
unemployment, North Carolina's
low wages and high drop-out rates
threaten the state's future quality
of life, economic researchers say.
Reflecting nationwide trends,
many of North Carolina's new
jobs are low-paying, service-sector
jobs, said Ken Johnson of the
Atlanta-based Southern Regional
' "It is not the kinds of jobs that
provide the standard of living you
normally associate with working
full-time jobs," Johnson said. "A
substantial part of the problem is
underemployment when people
are working full-time jobs but
receiving part-time pay. We are
going to see the chicken come

the semester)," he said.
