As part of our ongoing evaluation of the economic impact of the Marcellus Shale development in the State of Pennsylvania, The American Entrepreneur, Ron Morris, takes a look at what the industry is doing to overcome these government-driven obstacles. Plus, Ron talks with filmmaker Ann McElhinney, whose latest documentary, “Frack Nation”, is being hailed as the “answer” film to Josh Fox’s “Gasland”, and provides a look into the oil and gas industry that has never been seen before. Plus, we examine the issue of sick leave in the workplace, as Ron talks with Helen Darling, President and CEO of the National Employer Group on Health about some of the trends that have emerged around the country, and the decisions that small business owners face when it comes to weighing the costs and productivity dropoff when issuing sick days to employees. And we answer the question: Is Pittsburgh the new Hollywood? Ron talks with Chris Breakwell, the principal of 31st Street Studios, about his efforts to establish Pittsburgh as a filmmakers hub…and considering the studio has already hosted the Tom Cruise movie “One Shot”, as well as “The Dark Knight Rises”, the latest installment in the “Batman” series, in the past year, he’s off to a good start.
