Re: “HOPE Works Staffers Resign to Protest Leadership

I read the entire dossier compiled by the staff against the HOPE executive director. What struck me is how much this community has its own language, priorities and principles. So much so that it makes me wonder how transferable these complaints are to the wider working world.

Re: “Star 92.9 Hosts Mike & Mary Talk About Nonstop Holiday Music

Do you know what else is traditional and has its origins deep in human history? Sexual violence against women and the refusal to accept the answer "no."

Re: “Vermont Officials Stifle Release of Documents by Former Employee

Something seems rotten here, hopefully 7D will file a FOIA request for any and all relevant documents and (if that fails) find other ways to get the docs Winn refers to.

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

Mark Lade - the waiter is entitled to a tip, unless the service was particularly poor, because that is how waiters get paid. Do you think the waiter should work basically for free or at a loss? If you want to change the law to ensure waiters get paid regardless of tip, feel free. Meantime, this is the world we live in.

In any case it wasn't the waiter posting the receipt on social media, it was the restaurant.

Re: “How Electrifying? A Closer Look at Hallquist's Record as the CEO of Vermont Electric Coop

Abigal - she claimed that was violating its covenants, which appears to be false. She claimed that it was contemplating bankruptcy, which appears to be false. She claimed her relations with employees were "excellent" when she departed, which appears to be false. The issue with calling herself an engineer without an engineering degree or license is pretty mild, it's true. Having a few ambitious ideas fall apart is also a little bit of a nothingburger. But since there seems to be a genuinely good story here, why do you think she has blown it up so much and made false claims about it? Why seek credit as a "turnaround genius" for what appears to have been a concerted group effort?

Re: “Censorship of Burlington School Newspaper May Have Violated Law

Is this how Burlington parents think their children should be taught? Censor students, ignore serious allegations of misconduct and incompetence, break the law?
