Are you looking for absolute job security, maybe Wake County is not for you. Are you looking for an environment where the kids are the most important thing and you will be working with other teachers that are driven towards that goal, then Wake County schools may just be what you are looking for.
All of North Carolina is a non union.

Teacher pay is set by the state with the locals paying a supplement on top of. That varies considerably by county so the compensation by county is different.

The above link is for the 2008-09 supplement schedule
