Insight On Business the News Hour

Students Should Be Seen and Heard

As legislators and school boards and teachers make decisions about education...who listens to the students? That is the question on the minds of the Iowa Student Learning Institute...bet you didn't know there was one. Here we talk with the ISLI president Justin Sindelar and member Taylor Larick about what they think should happen and about the upcoming Student Voice Rally scheduled for April 11. Good stuff here from two very mature and well spoken young people.

New Book: A Quarter Million Steps by Anthony Paustian

Our friend and leading creativity thinker Dr. Anthony Paustian will release his new book A Quarter Million Steps - Creativity, Imagination & Leading Transformative Change in May but we got him BEFORE the book is public. Here we talk about how, in many areas even with all the personal technology, there is a lack of the stuff that made the Apollo space program so successful and transformed the way we live today. It is not only a book about our amazing history it is also a book about the many small steps it takes to create success in life. We'd tell you more but...you should just listen!  To Pre-Order the book, with signatures of Dr. Paustian and Apollo Astronaut Al Worden head to this link!

Project Labor Agreements - Local Control?

When we first read about Project Labor Agreements (PLA) and SSB 1145 working it's way through the Iowa Legislature we were intrigued as to what it meant for business, tax payers and workers. Greg Spenner from Associated Builders and Contractors contacted our office with a request to come on the air and discuss the bill and his organization. We set a date for the studio interview. After reading the documents from Mr. Spenner we then reached out to the Iowa State Building and Construction Trades Council (ISBCTC) president Bill Gerhard and asked if he would join us for a "point/counter-point" conversation. When we informed Mr. Spenner of this his group declined the offer. That is the back-story to this conversation.

Our guests are Andy Roberts Business Manager of the Plumbers and Fitters Local 33 and ISBCTC Vice President and Bill Gerhard, President of the Iowa State Building and Construction Trades Council. We discuss local control, safety, costs, apprenticeship programs and jobs. We think you'll find this interesting...
