2 students teach West Virginia lawmakers about vaping dangers

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) recently reported that the number of high schoolers who vape in the state has increased by 150% over the past three years.

West Virginia is an at-will employment state. This is generally taken to mean that most employers aren't under any contractual obligation to their workers.
