On this week’s America’s Business, host Mike Hambrick focuses on the “skills gap,” reinforcing the recent announcement of a statewide Dream It. Do It. campaign in Nebraska. Phyllis Eisen of the Manufacturing Institute discusses the need for a skilled workforce, and the NAM’s Jeff Noah reports on the survey views of small and medium-sized manufacturers. We hear from Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman and Congressman Geoff Davis, R-KY, as well.
The mid-term elections come in for scrutiny in our reporters’ roundtable segment, featuring Senate expert Jennifer Duffy of The Cook Political Report and Bob Benenson, political editor of Congressional Quarterly.
The weekly conversation with Renee Giachino of the American Justice Partnership tackles two topics: the abuse of consumer protection statutes, and the American Trial Lawyers Association’s name change to the American Association for Justice.
Our weekly features offer commentary in a variety of forms: Soapbox, Factory Floor, and NAM’s Hank Cox’s look back at manufacturing history. And NAM President John Engler discusses the skills gap in his weekly “Last Word.”
