Eddie Melton on Jobs
Pay people $5000 to take jobs in Vermont
Vermont is losing residents at an unsustainable rate, Gov. Phil Scott told lawmakers at his budget address. His solution: a plan to pay out-of-staters $5,000 to take a job in Vermont--any job.
Vermont made international news when it announced
its remote worker program, which will reimburse out-of-staters up to $10,000 for their costs if they move to work remotely from Vermont. Scott's latest proposal includes $1 million to pay outsiders to move to the state for Vermont jobs.

- Every Resident Deserves Access to Good Paying Jobs
- As an integral part of a thriving economy, Eddie will continue to be an advocate for organized labor,
as he deeply believes in its value as a product of a household where both his mother and step-father were active members of their local unions.
