Time, money, gift items -- local organizations weigh in on what they really need, now and through the rest of the year.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently appointed Andy Shallal, the politically-minded owner of local eatery Busboys and Poets, to chair the city’s Workforce Investment Council. The council is charged with overseeing the city’s job training programs, and the appointment comes after a nearly-year-long vacancy, when millions of federal dollars meant to help the unemployed went uncollected. We speak with Shallal about his goals for the group and how he thinks the city can best prepare local workers for employment.
