Over a thousand Vermonters have signed the online and paper version of the petition and their collective actions are making a difference. But there is a big struggle ahead and they need our help. Nearly two thirds of the administrative and service staff at the State Colleges make less than the Vermont Livable Wage. And now the State College’s Chancellor wants to cut their already small retirement benefits and limit any wage increases. This is not right. This is not fair. This is not the Vermont way.
Together we can fight back against this race to the bottom! Here are a few ways we can support the staff at Vermont State Colleges:
