Chu: The paradox of people | Comment

Like Vermont, we came together, regardless of political party, on the top threats facing our state. From the State House to the kitchen table, Vermonters agree that something must be done to solve the labor and housing crisis.

Data released in recent months quickly became common knowledge: 26,000 open jobs, 2.3% unemployment, which means that even if every unemployed person in Vermont found a job in the state, there would still be more than 18 000 open jobs. Also, workers need more housing options so that we attract more people to the job market, we don’t exacerbate the problems of our tight housing market.
