Town Square: Equal Pay Day

Mar 30, 2017

Next Tuesday is Equal Pay Day, the point in the year to which women have to work to equal what their male counterparts earned as of December 31st. With decades of pay inequality still haunting working women and families, is the annual focus really helping to bridge the gender gap or is it just a moment blip on the calendar? From the days of the Equal Pay Act in 1963 and including the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, has federal legislation made a substantive difference in increasing pay parity? Today, our panel takes up Equal Pay Day.

Town Square: Project Based Learning

Feb 23, 2017

Traditional, lecture-based methods of instruction often fail to engage learners of all ages, from young children, to college students and adults. Project-based learning has been heralded as not only a better way to impart knowledge, but also teach kids vital life skills such as teamwork and self-advocacy.

A recent downward revision of predicted revenues has left a cloud over the 2017 legislative session and the Ige Administration's proposed biennium budget. Uncertainty swirls over how the difference will be made up, what the Governor's financial priorities will be and how his administration will approach the many issues weighing on the minds of Hawaii residents. Hawaii Governor David Ige joined us to take calls and field questions from his constituents.
