Backstabbed Outlets in Dining Room
I'm painting my dining room and noticed that the outlets in this 20A circuit were somehow backstabbed. The wiring itself is 12 gauge, but the outlets have 14AWG pigtails, backstabbed, and connected to the 12AWG conductors in each box.
Is this in compliance with NEC? I know that 20A requires 12AWG, but does this apply to the pigtails also?
