Vermont's Underpaid Judicial Workers

Bill Capasso discusses the Critical Situation Facing the Vermont Judiciary. An extremely high number of Docket Clerks have resigned or otherwise left their jobs since the beginning of this fiscal year. Employees who loved their jobs left the Judiciary because they could not afford to give up better paying options. This constitutes a crisis in light of the important role these employees play in the operations of our courts system as the level of service to the public suffers from high turnover and low morale. Women workers are doubly victimized by the low wages at judiciary.
