Re: “Can a Scandal-Tainted Hotel Save Q-Less Burke Mountain?

Stenger, Quiros , Shumlin,Leahy,Sanders all are getting away with this "con"..all are throwing each other under the bus or saying " I didn't know anything about this"..All are liars who got their pockets filled..who all pushed for this to happen..Yup sell Vermont to the highest bidder, give big money and get a "forever green card"..The ones who were hurt by this is the people of the Northeast Kingdom..The rich politicians don't care, they just walk away with money in their pockets..

If you made it to the bottom of the article, this episode from the summer is likely also of interest to you. https://soundcloud.com/wintry-mix-cast/bur…

It is the same sentient when everyone was referring to this as "Kingdom Con". as a native Vter and one who grew up in the Kingdom I found it offensive to the kingdom

You're right, Mike. We've updated the story. Thanks for pointing that out.

Just for your information, Bill Stenger is NOT a native of the Northeast Kingdom. Big shots have to be imported.

Re: “About Time? New Overtime Rule Worries Vermont Employers

I wish this talked a little bit more about how so many employers illegally categorize their workers as exempt when they don't pass the test of "administrative, managerial, or professional" and how most of these workers have no idea that this is wrong. I was illegally classified as exempt for about 10-15 years of my career in the nonprofit sector, and my husband is illegally classified now, before this change, AND is required to work overtime. My understanding is that Obama made this rule change to address this common practice. It's not enough just to pay them $47k. The positions also have to pass the other tests.

40 hour work week? Farmers and other self-employed workers are laughing hysterically at that.
