Phyllis George, former co-anchor of "CBS Morning News," will receive a $200,000 raise from the strike-plagued network, although she left the show more than a year ago, sources said Wednesday. "We do not comment on people who don't work for us anymore," a network official said. But a former employee who asked not to be identified said that "Her (George's) contract was a no-cut contract, that means you pay what its worth no matter what." George's new no-work salary is $1.2 million, up from $1 million last year and the $800,000 she was receiving when she left in August, 1985.
