Workforce Strategy

Posted on: November 22nd, 2013 by admin

The creation of a statewide strategy for workforce development is among the priorities for Cheryl Stanton, who earlier this year was named the new Executive Director of South Carolina’s Department of Employment and Workforce. With a resurgence in manufacturing and the development of new logistics hubs in South Carolina, a shortage of new jobs is not as much of a problem as a need for more qualified applicants. On this program, we discuss the task of retraining the state’s unemployed and steering younger people to the career paths with the most promising futures. John Gessaman of Carolinas Gateway Partnership and Lewis Gossett of the S.C. Manufacturers Alliance join the conversation.


Road Repairs

Posted on: May 10th, 2013 by admin

With an estimated price tag of $29 billion to repair and maintain South Carolina’s roads over the next 20 years, South Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Robert St. Onge is looking to the state’s lawmakers for a plan to pay for the work. Finding the money will not be easy as policy makers have expressed reluctance to raise the state’s gas tax or add tolls to some roads. On this program, St. Onge looks at the solutions other states have found to address their infrastructure needs and discusses the significance of the Charleston port for the region. Ike McLeese, President and CEO at the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce and Ned Curran, CEO of The Bissell Companies and Chair of the North Carolina Board of Transportation join the conversation.
