INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Are Hawai‘i’s Non-Profits In for Tough Times?

 

Hawai‘i Community Foundation recently held a conference for the local non-profits and programs that would be impacted by two federal proposals: domestic spending budget cuts, and a tax plan that includes changes to claiming deductions and an increase in the standard deduction. INSIGHTS discusses how Hawai‘i’s non-profits are preparing for tough times, and which budget cuts could hurt the most.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Retain & Recruit

 

Hawai‘i is now at “full employment,” meaning our statewide, adjusted unemployment rate has fallen below 3 percent. In this tight job market, local and national businesses, big and small, are competing for the most qualified employees. While the gap widens between Hawai‘i’s high cost of living and the average salary scale, how can Hawai‘i workers take advantage of this situation – and how can local companies get creative with attracting qualified job candidates?

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
The Right of Access

 

More than 50 years ago, under Chief Justice William S. Richardson, the Supreme Court of the State of Hawai‘i ruled the public had the right to access all beaches throughout our State. But for decades there have been disputes — clashes throughout the islands — involving access pathways that lead to our beaches.

 

What do you think? Is is time we settled this “right of access” dispute linked to one of the most historically significant rulings in our history?
