SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt.-
More job cuts at GE Healthcare in South Burlington-- though how many is unclear.

The Vermont location specializes in developing information technology for the health care industry. About 850 people worked there when GE bought out IDX Systems in 2005. There have been several job cuts since then, including at least two others earlier this year.

WCAX News received numerous reports of more job cuts Wednesday, but the company would only say: "GE Healthcare can confirm that it is looking at ways to streamline its structure and reduce costs through different ways, including removing duplication and layers in the organization. This will reduce complexity, speed up decision making and help us become more accessible for our customers. Taking these actions will position GE Healthcare well for 2013 and beyond."

Brattleboro Retreat lays off workers

By WCAX News - bio | email




BRATTLEBORO, Vt.-
Layoffs were announced Wednesday at the Brattleboro Retreat.

The psychiatric hospital and substance abuse treatment center cut 31 positions Wednesday due to projected budget deficits this year and next year.

An employee of the Retreat tells WCAX News more layoffs are expected Thursday. The Retreat currently has about 500 employees. The jobs being cut will affect both union and nonunion workers. They come just two days after unionized workers picketed to call attention to troubled contract talks.

So why did people vote Shumlin back in office? Nothing is getting any better for anyone here. Vermont economy is getting worse, jobs are disappearing yet faster, while disabled people can't get services. Did all the intelligent Vermonters move away?

Do you really have to have laid out for you? Is it just coincidence that Obamacare is taking over the health care system and all of these health care jobs are disappearing?

The GE jobs, by the way, are gone because of the changes in healthcare associated with Obamacare.

Because here in Vermont we believe in the class warfare argument that the democrats have been spilling nationwide for the last decade. We want our government to take care of us. We don't want anyone to get rich (except ourselves..in which case we move to NH or Florida which has no income tax)...the Shumlin vote is not surprising since Vermont has voted for the loan socialist in congress for quite a while now despite the fact he is joke in the Capital building.

move the jobs to where people will happily take them for half of what people are making in high cost of living vermont.

Vermont priced itself out of the job market by running up the cost of housing and because of high taxes, it's for the children now equals their parents have no job.

"Save the open land, NIMBY, it's for the children, act 250" (Joe)

Joe, the truth is that the Shumlin energy sprawl plan is destroying Vermont’s open land without justifiable/reasonable economic or environmental returns. These industrial wind stations and solar arrays are manufactured in China and are intermittent power sources. Sure they create temporary construction work for out of state companies but then what? They are backed up by fossil fuel plants creating a net gain in greenhouse gas pollution for VT. I support the continued operation of Vermont Yankee and a future base load plant located in Vernon where the infrastructure already exists.

Layoffs are as bad or worse nearly everywhere in the country, stop adolescent finger pointing you twits. Get out and create and work and help. It would be much more admirable then sitting and whining.

You don't understand Vermonter's very well if you think that. Real Vermonters stick around and fight.
