The growing gap between the rich and the poor has disastrous consequences for our economy and communities. Can Vermont be a leader in encouraging the creation and development of jobs that have strong benefits and pay a living wage? What role does a higher minimum wage and enhanced family policies play in rebuilding the middle class? How can the state of Vermont better support businesses that are creating good jobs? Join us for a chance to discuss and learn more about these issues.
