This week on JobMakers, host Denzil Mohammed talks with Dinesh Wadhwani, founder and CEO of ThinkLite, LLC in Natick, Massachusetts, and immigrant from Ghana. His journey began when his grandfather was forced to flee India, and built a business in Ghana that paved the way for the generations to come. When Dinesh moved to the United States in 2008 as a student at Babson College, he was determined to build a life and a business here in the U.S. While he was studying entrepreneurship, he became one: in just a few short years, his technology-based life science solutions business expanded across the globe and evolved into a life-saving enterprise, purifying the air in hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, as you’ll learn in this week’s JobMakers.

Russia, Russia, Russia? I can see Russia from my mouse! 🚨Canada's largest banks are all offline. Royal Bank, BMO Bank of Montreal, CIBC Bank. Did Trudeau try to hack into their databases? Did the U.S. hack them first, to stop it? What could cause all three to crash on the same day — hours after […]

Join Jim and Greg as they analyze the sinking support for President Biden among Democrats and what it means for his re-election chances. They also cover a new report that suggests Russia may not be ready to invade Ukraine. And a new filing by Special Counsel John Durham raises questions about the Clinton campaign’s culpability for spying on Donald Trump – even in the White House.

Join Jim and Greg as they assess departing Tennessee Democrat Jim Cooper’s warning to his party about its alienation of rural voters. They are amazed that President Biden’s latest deportation and inflation numbers are somehow even worse than expected. And they laugh at Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke’s inability to decide if he wants to take away your guns or not.

Join Jim and Greg as they praise Virginia state senators for voting to strike down school mask mandates in a lopsided vote. They also feign astonishment as high profile Democrats change their tune after failing to pass their radical agenda and the midterm elections get closer. And they analyze Chris Cuomo’s ridiculous demand to keep quiet about information he allegedly has about CNN’s dealings with his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In the beer brewing business, women are underrepresented, and Megan Greenwood joins the podcast to tell her story from corporate job to the brewing room.

In this conversation we discuss challenges women face in the industry, how risk taking is the only way to challenge your vision for a business or idea, and the complexity of team make ups. We reveal how Megan rose to the occasion to become one of the ONLY female conservative brewers in the country. From an executive position with a high paying salary, to a female brewer ready to take the industry by storm!

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud their countrymen for their refusal to watch the Beijing Winter Olympics, handing NBC terrible ratings. They laugh at the sudden change in “The Science” as Democratic governors realize mask mandates in schools are unpopular. And President Biden’s tough talk on workplace bullying proves ineffective as it took a two month investigation to fire science advisor Eric Lander.

First I spoke to a young man I know who recently began working for a rather large California tech company who opened a large facility near here.  He enjoyed his work, but he was bothered because he had to do much of the work of people that did not “know English”.  From our conversation and […]

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a much better than expected jobs report when dismal numbers were expected. They also unload on President Biden and the Democrats for running out of COVID relief funds – because their $1.9 trillion legislation contained very little COVID relief. And they scrutinize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments that America’s Olympic athletes should just compete and not speak out against the repressive Chinese government.

This week on JobMakers, host Denzil Mohammed talks with Dr. Anuradha Sajjanhar, lead researcher for the report Immigrant Essential Workers During the COVID-19 Pandemic published by The Immigrant Learning Center, co-producer of this podcast. She found that immigrants, despite playing an outsized role in industries deemed essential. such as healthcare, food and agriculture, and the supply chain, were largely left out of federal and state support during the pandemic, which negatively affected their safety and their efforts to help Americans weather this crisis. The report offers a path forward, as you’ll learn in this week’s JobMakers.

This week on JobMakers, host Denzil Mohammed talks with Rodrigo Souza, immigrant from Brazil and owner of Comeketo Brazilian Steakhouse in Leominster, Massachusetts. Drawing on the resourcefulness and doggedness of his Brazilian culture, Rodrigo built a successful business here in the United States, creating around 400 jobs since his restaurant opened in 2009. Offering rodízio-style service, Comeketo won the People’s Choice Award in the 2020 Worcester, Massachusetts Best Chef Competition. Even during the pandemic, Rodrigo found new and inventive ways of generating revenue and keeping people employed. He’s also given back to the country that took him in, from his three years in the U.S. Army to feeding the town’s homeless, as you’ll learn in this week’s JobMakers.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to NBC’S Chuck Todd predicting a “shellacking” if poll numbers for Democrats continue to sink. They cover an admission by the U.S. State Department that it is unable to evacuate most Americans ahead of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And they roll their eyes at Jen Psaki’s recommendations for stress relief after a frustrating week for Democrats.

This week on JobMakers, host Denzil Mohammed talks with Gaetan Kashala, immigrant from the Democratic Republic of Congo, co-founder of Globex Corporate, a consulting firm connecting the U.S. to Central and Western African businesses and governments, and also the engagement director for AIM, the Associated Industries of Massachusetts. Gaetan has built a career helping immigrant and other minority small business owners in the Bay State by giving them the opportunity for a crack at the American Dream. And he’s seen the results: thriving businesses, growing families and community development. He shares their stories and his own, of a legacy built by his father in Cambridge, in this week’s JobMakers.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news of a pretty big shift in political party allegiance over the past year. They also unload on the tech executive and partial owner of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors who coldly declared that he and most people do not care about the plight of the Uighurs in China. And they’re frustrated to learn that the gunman at the Texas synagogue hostage crisis was allowed into the U.S. despite numerous red flags.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin for refusing to eliminate or alter the filibuster despite massive pressure from their own party. They also welcome the Supreme Court’s decision striking down President Biden’s vaccine mandate on all businesses with more than 100 employees while also noting a separate decision that upheld the mandate on personnel at health care facilities. And they take a look at even more signs that Russia may be planning to invade Ukraine in the coming weeks.

After a brief discussion about outgoing Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam commenting on his blackface yearbook photo, Jim & Greg welcome polls showing just 40 percent of Michigan voters are ready to re-elect Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They also grimace as year-on-year inflation is the worst in almost 40 years. And they hammer President Biden for saying anyone not supporting the Dems’ plan on elections reform is the equivalent of George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis.

 

Jim & Greg welcome the return of in-person schooling to Chicago after a four-day hissy fit from the Chicago Teachers Union. They also sigh as President Biden reportedly makes no progress in trying to deter Russian military action in Ukraine. And the Biden administration gets caught flat-footed again as out supply chain problems grow.
