Don't Let the Douglas Administration Dump on Unemployed Vermonters

The number of Vermonters forced into unemployment by the global economic crisis has put a strain on the State's unemployment insurance fund. To address this problem, the Douglas administration has proposed cutting the amount of money that unemployed Vermonters will receive while they are out of work. The governor calls this a "balanced" approach to dealing with the problem. We call it heartless and inhumane.
