05/14 - Job Market 2014

What does Louisiana’s employment market look like for job hunters in 2014?

The month of May heralds the end of the school semester and the entry of thousands of new college graduates into Louisiana’s job market. This year these job seekers will also be joined by hundreds of veterans returning to the state’s workforce as the military downsizes its troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. So, what does Louisiana’s employment market look like for these job hunters in 2014? What employment sectors anticipate the most growth? And are Louisiana’s college graduates and returning veterans adequately prepared for the jobs that lie ahead? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Job Market 2014” Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD.

Backgrounder

According to the Louisiana Board of Regents’ most current data, a total of 37,388 students completed two-year, four-year and higher programs in 2013. There was a slight downward trend in Associate degrees; with a slight upward trend in Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees awarded. Two-year degrees will continue to rise as enrollment at Louisiana’s community colleges and technical schools outpaces every other state, surging 72% from 2007 to 2012, according to U.S. Department of Education figures.

     02/18 - Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana

How widespread is the problem in our state? Take the survey!
Governor John Bel Edward’s deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned in November due to allegations of sexual harassment. A month earlier, celebrity chef John Besh stepped down from his restaurant management group after sexual harassment accusations. Charges of sexual misconduct in the workplace against celebrities and government officials made state and national headlines during the last several months of 2017.

How widespread is the problem in our state? Where is the distinction drawn between boorish acts and abusive behavior? Is every circumstance unique or should all offenders be dealt with in the same manner? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana” Wednesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, February 27)

Panelists:
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell; Senate Select Committee on Women and Children
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society of Human Resource
- Janice Lansing, Chairperson of Governor Edwards’ Sexual Harassment & Discrimination Policy Task Force
- Allison A. Jones; attorney; Downer, Jones & Wilhite in Shreveport

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and Southern University Vice President for External Affairs, Robyn Merrick, host the discussion.
