Whoa, big surprise.
You push out all the real companies with real jobs. You make it almost impossible to build a new house so what do you expect our young people to do? What's LEFT are bead stringer, tatooer, "smoke paraphernalia" seller or fast food slinger? You could add farm worker and landscaper to these jobs as that addresses surprise #2, more minorities in VT.
Of course, when you can't get your own people to do jobs who ya gonna call?
It couldn't be easier for the employers. No papers, no employment documentation, no insurance, no taxes, no benis, no nothin'. Except any and all social services all provided free (taxpayers cover it) including public education.
Don't worry, when barak is elected the real gravy train willleave the station.

Soon, Fletcher-Allen in Burlington will be the States largest employer... kind of sad to think.

Having an aging population will be blissful because there won't be any more screaming babies in places adults and well-behaved children enjoy themselves.
