The city of Burlington is facing a crossing guard shortage – NBC 5

It has nine positions to fill, which it's trying to do before the winter months settle in. "It's gotten worse over the last year or two," said Burlington Director of Public Works Chapin Spencer. "We're now at a point where we're doing everything we can to fill these positions." 

"One crossing guard NBC5 spoke with agreed the shortage is worse than he's seen in his 18 years working for the city. But he and the other guards are still keeping a positive attitude when they put on the bright vest and pick up the stop sign."

    What schools are having a problem ?? Are you telling me that with all
    the kids, you can’t get a " Parent " to do this activity ??

    Or how about having any of Burlington’s panhandlers do it, as there
    signs state " Any Help Appreciated " ?? But that would mean they would
    have to have some responsibility and probably have to pay taxes on the
    wages they would earn…………Nah, never mind !!
