INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI: What’s it Going to Take?
Hawaiʻi’s Resilience Through the Pandemic

 

On this week’s INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI What’s it Going to Take?, we’ll discuss Hawaiʻi’s Resilience Through the Pandemic. Like the rest of the world, our state has had to pause and hit the reset button due to the novel coronavirus. While much uncertainty remains, there’s optimism that we will emerge from this crisis in a strong position to face the future. Communities across Hawaiʻi are helping those in need. But there’s still much work to do as we figure out a new normal. You can join the conversation by phoning in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
What’s it Going to Take? Managing Tourism in Hawaiʻi

 

This week’s INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI is a special edition, expanded to 90 minutes, asking What’s it Going to Take? Managing Tourism in Hawaiʻi. The tourism industry is one of the State’s largest employers and has been the driving force of our economy. But there are costs to the arrival of more than 10 million visitors each year, including overcrowded beaches, traffic and the wear and tear on natural treasures. The coronavirus pandemic is now crippling the visitor industry. This could be a rare opportunity to reshape the future of tourism in Hawaiʻi.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Workers Wanted

 

Hawaiʻi continues to report one of the lowest monthly unemployment rates in the country – a little more than 2%. Many open positions in the market means that job seekers can be picky, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors. For employers, the situation is complicated: Hawaiʻi’s workforce is shrinking, with an older population at or near retirement and a younger population leaving for better opportunities on the Continent. Join the conversation about Workers Wanted on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. You can phone in or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
