Letter to the editor: Good, not low-paying, jobs needed

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Geoffrey Cobden



On Oct. 17 you published a nice front-page article on Randy Brock. He spoke of creating good jobs in Vermont.

I remember a few of his employees years ago. They worked as security people at Middlebury College for minimum wage. We do not want more jobs like that.

This is one reason we do not want more Republicans at any level.

Unless Democrats push for Bernie’s program, such as $15/hour minimum wage, they need to disappear as well.
