Re: “Hire Anxiety: Layoffs Jolt Burlington-Area Tech Sector

Agree @Paco. We are constantly told, "everything is great" by the politicians and non-profits "leaders" while we are closing schools and our hospitals are going bankrupt.

Vermont has a dismal tech record despite the tax-payer funded programs and PR spin about up-and-coming startups that go nowhere. Five years of these dudes talking success while companies shut down (often after getting state funding) is ridiculous.

The non-profit programs that are getting funded to start up tech companies are just that - no profits coming from them. The only winners are the gov't and non-profit staff employees who spin stories so we keep paying them to promote their "cool tech" products while they clearly have no idea what they are doing. All the PR is masking the fact that none of these people have done anything to help anyone other than themselves.
