35% and 37% pay raises at DHHS? $80,000-plus for 24-year-olds?

As Under the Dome reported today, there's been some movement among staff members at the state DHHS. The Progressive Pulse dug a little deeper and tells us that those changes came with some hefty pay raises:

N.C. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos gave some very big raises to at least two members of her leadership team.

Ricky Diaz, Wos’ communications director, and Matthew McKillip, her chief policy adviser, got April pay bumps of $23,000 and $22,500, respectively.

Diaz now makes $85,000 a year and McKillip makes $87,500, according to state employee salary information maintained on databases by with the Charlotte Observer and News & Observer.

Both are 24, two years out of college and came to DHHS after working for Gov. Pat McCrory’s campaign and transition teams.
