IN THE NEWS: VWC stands in solidarity with IBM Workers

The Vermont Workers' Center has a long history of standing with IBM workers. IBM is one of Vermonters largest employers and one of the most profitable businesses in the world, in part by exploiting their workers and by conducting massive layoffs for short term gain. On Tuesday, April 24, 2012, IBM workers all over the country protested this ongoing exploitation. VWC participated locally. Check out the media coverage:
