maxresdefault (1)WHAT: This month’s Downtown Forum looks at the state of jobs and meaningful careers for our State. We’ll ask questions like: Is the job market adequate for our work force and sufficient for the economy we’d like to have? What can our Governor and Legislature do to provide better jobs and careers to keep our kids here in Hawaii? How can the private sector attract sufficient capital to keep and inspire our young people?
