Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Bistro Shuts Down

What goes around comes around. Businesses addicted to low-wage jobs should die. Good riddance. (ps -did anyone else laugh out loud at the irony of an alcohol purveyor decrying addiction?)

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

Any place that accommodates these scabs had best be prepared for protests and pickets on their doorsteps. I wonder how the rest of their guests will feel about that. Image how the Yelp, Travelocity, and other reviews will look afterwards. Those businesses have to stay here after the scabs go, and the members of the community will remember which side these hotels and restaurants are on. Count on it.

Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses Serve Strike Notice

No, David Brizendine, I'm talking about the 1.4 BILLION dollars in revenue that flows through the hospital every years, making it one of the 50 biggest hospitals in the nation by revenue. (hard to believe, I know, but it's true.) I'm guessing you have zero understanding of how hospital finances work, including "days cash on hand," the real measure of how much money UVMed, or any hospital, really has. You might want to learn something about healthcare finance before you open your mouth and confirm your ignorance again, sir.

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

Anyone who trusts their healthcare to a bunch of scab nurses who can't get regular jobs is out of their mind. Don't trust your mother's or child's healthcare to these mercenaries who truly are in it only for the money. If you've ever experienced a strike you already know to cancel your healthcare appointments for July 12th and 13th NOW! UVMed can protest all they want, but the simple fact of the matter is that care in the hospital will be both sub-standard and unsafe on those days. Don't be a fool; cancel your July appointments today!

Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses Serve Strike Notice

Thank you, nurses, for standing up for our community. Someone needs to protect us from those money-hungry, greedy executives at UVMed Hospital who are more interested in lining their own pockets than in caring for the sick and vulnerable among us. We support you and will stand with you, just as you have stood up for and cared for us at the moments we most needed it. You've always been there for us, and we in the community will now be there for you. We side with those who have been by our bedsides, and not with Million-dollar CEOs.

Re: “Nurses, UVM Medical Center Remain at Odds Over Contract

Annoyed, perhaps you should consider calling yourself "Cowardly," since you don't have the spine to comment under your own name.
