My experience in the Wallace area has been at a standstill, as far as making a decent salary, the pay rate in Duplin is not balanced. The pay rate needs to increase so that the people in the community can afford to buy first-time homes and be able to keep them. I would like to see our county fix this problem. I think that if enough people come together and vote for the pay to increase and introduce the matter to the ones that are in charge to make this change I think that more of local businesses can get the help that they need to fulfill open positions.

I have been living in Wallace for since the 6th grade. I am now an upcoming senior. My experience in this town is overall good. The people here make you feel at home. Wallace is a very family oriented town. I believe our school sports helps to bring everyone closer together.
I grew up here but would not choose to live here in the future. It is "behind the times" in almost every way compared to the rest of the country. Small businesses in particular never seem to be able to survive more than a few months. Only large corporations, like Walmart, seem to be able to stay in business. There are few job opportunities, or opportunities of any kind.
