Weekly Regional Roundup

Weekly Regional Roundup September 26, 2014

What would prompt Attorney General Mike DeWine and Democratic challenger David Pepper to shout at each other and bang fists on tables? And since there are no debates this year exactly where did this happen? We'll answer those queries on the reporters' roundtable along with a look at this week's indictments of a local common pleas court judge, and have the latest on the state's court appeal over early voting procedures. Join host Rick Jackson Friday morning at 9:00 for The Sound of Ideas.

Paid Sick Leave

Paid Sick Leave September 25, 2014

If you have a job and you get sick, what do you do? Stay home and take a sick day, right? What if you don't get sick days? 40% of the American workforce, many of them low-wage workers, have no paid time off for illness. If you want to be paid, you've got to go to work.

They Chose to Stay in School

They Chose to Stay in School September 24, 2014

When David Boone was homeless and 15, he'd sleep on the wooden bleachers in a Cleveland park. And the next day he'd be in school. In a district where dropouts are common, Boone stayed. He's a junior at Harvard now and has a co-op job with Microsoft next spring. He'll be with us on The Sound of Ideas along with students and graduates from around the region, to talk about staying in school when dropping out is common. Hosted by Mike McIntyre.
