Editorial: H.552 — House plan unravels state's pro-business efforts

Posted on April 10, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The primary reason to phase in the minimum wage hike in Vermont from $8.73 per hour to $10.10 per hour over three years—instead of rushing to that level by Jan. 1, 2015 as House bill H-552 mandates—is so Vermont businesses can gradually adjust to the 15 percent hike in labor expenses and are not put at a disadvantage with neighboring states.

Opinion: Vermont economy isn't as great as politicans claim

Posted on February 10, 2014 |
By Jeff Provost



As I drove down the road the other day, headed from one commitment to the next, I was hit with a sudden, in-your-face realization about the current state of Vermont’s economy.

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By Lisa Gosselin



“I’d love to move to Vermont and start a company here,” the snowboarder said with a sigh as we shared a chairlift at Stowe. I sighed too: If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, my mortgage would be paid.
