Letters to the Editor

Driven by greed

I read Rob Roper’s editorial in the Dec. 14 edition concerning his opposition to a $15 minimum wage with a mixture of disbelief and anger.

Apparently, the interests of businesses supersede the financial needs of those in the work force. I guess it is better to keep people in grinding poverty so that businesses can continue to grow.

The minimum wage has not kept pace with the increase in cost of living.

Corporations continue to increase profits, shareholders get their dividends and those at the bottom layer of the workforce receive nothing.

The disparity between rich and poor continues to grow and is now a chasm.

I am truly disgusted by the greed and lack of compassion that has pervaded our society in recent years.

Kudos to Forrest

I’d like to thank Brian Forrest for his efforts in pushing the town toward achieving its goals of a more energy efficient future.

When leadership unfortunately doesn’t come from our elected officials, it needs to come from we, the people. As he was quoted to say: “We don’t have a lot of time.”

I am inspired by his efforts to take action. He clearly loves our country and our planet, and we are lucky to have him in Williston.
