Vermonters Facing The Race To The Bottom
Vermont Workers Rights Board Hearing with Senator Bernie Sanders

6:30PM, Monday, February 19th
Contois Auditorium, Burlington

Where did the good jobs go?
Should every business pay a livable wage?
How many of us are working full-time for poverty wages?
How do we support and create more livable wage jobs?
How do we raise the bar for wages in low-wage sectors in Vermont?

The Vermont Workers’ Center and Vermont Livable Wage Campaign along with dozens of other local sponsoring organizations would like to invite your organization to this important event. The Vermont Workers Rights Board is made up of dozens of elected officials, faith leaders and community leaders. Come speak out and hear testimony from area restaurant & hospitality workers, area school support staff, construction workers, laid off factory workers, workers at UVM, Fletcher Allen, Verizon, COTS and many more. Please come participate in this critical community discussion regarding poverty wages, livable wages and the future of jobs in our community.
