Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

mercenaries? Scabs? They're humans who save lives. Just because they aren't part of a Union doesn't mean they're second class citizens, they just haven't paid dues to an organization.

What if the Hotel Vermont wouldn't give you accommodation based on race, religion, sex, annual income, height or weight? You're asking them to discriminate based on job status..

I'm sure if you had a car accident and a temporary nurse gave you lifesaving care, would it really matter whether S/he paid dues to a Union?

I'd be grateful that they were available to replace people who are leaving their patients to fend for themselves.

Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

Why criticize a hotel for offering its services? The Hotel Vermont is in the business of selling rooms to people who need to sleep there. To criticize them for doing just that, selling their services to people who are needing a place to sleep, whether they are or aren't temporary nurses is absurd. Are the nurses criminals? They are just people looking to help people live

Should you prefer the Hotel discriminate based on a customer's job status?

What if the new nurses staying at the Hotel Vermont are more qualified than the current nurses on staff?

What if they save lives while they're here? What if yours is one of them?

Be smart and think before you get on your soapbox. The Hotel Vermont is a business which is trying to stay in business, and it's giving life savers a mattress. Get a hold of yourself.

Re: “Selling the Herd: A Milk Price Crisis Is Devastating Vermont's Dairy Farms

Annie Proulx saw this coming and wrote about it in her incredibly bleak but genius novel Postcards. If you haven't read it you should as a Vermonter--it's your story

Re: “State Sen. Debbie Ingram Arrested for DUI in Williston

Get off your high horse Citizen--as if you are a perfect "conservative" or Republican. Nobody is perfect whether they have a D next to his or her name or not. Comments such as yours just reveal your idiocy and poorly educated short-sighted, narrow-minded world view. Grow up.
