Finances, The Economy and Frontier Days Today on The Morning Zone
When reading the news lately about the Obama administration's control over its supposedly independent labor board, you can almost hear Dana Carvey’s SNL character, The Church Lady, preparing her famous line "How convenient!" Here's the deal: The Obama administration has been trying to have it both ways, enabling an obscure but powerful agency to slash away at business while simultaneously claiming to have no control of the situation. Stop me if this sounds familiar, but the White House essentially wants to help its political allies yet avoid being held accountable by legislators and voters. Brett McMahon—VP of Miller and Long Concrete Construction and spokesperson for the Halt the Assault campaign—has been outspoken about the damaging effects NLRB’s regulations have had on small business; helping bring many of the key issues into public consciousness. Brett will be our guest in The Morning Zone today at 7:07AM MDT.
At 8:07, We are in the midst of tourism season, and, of course, the beginning of Frontier Days. A good time to chat about how tourism affects our community and also local businesses. Anya Petersen-Frey, Southeast Regional Director of WyomingEntrepreneur.biz or WyEn.biz guests along with Alan Dubberley, Deputy Director of the Wyoming Office of Tourism, and Shantelle Dedicke, the Director of Convention Sales for Visit Cheyenne, the Convention and Visitor's Bureau. Alan and Shantelle will share their thoughts on the good, and the bad (if any) of tourism in our state and what we can expect this year in relation, perhaps, to prior years and we'll discuss what our local businesses, throughout the state, not just in Cheyenne, can do to be more 'tourist' friendly and perhaps build customers that will come back year after year, or go back and purchase from our local business' websites?
