This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Roy Mathews, Alex Petropoulos, Jeff Luse, and Torben Halbe.

The recently averted rail strikes in America were threatened, in part, because of concerns over rail worker safety. Roy Matthews says the Federal Railroad Administration pursues non-sequiturs over safety.

The online safety of children is worth taking seriously. Alex Petropoulos cautions that it’s something that should be trusted to parents rather than Mark Zuckerberg.

With the financial pinch that nearly everyone is feeling, tax relief could provide a welcome break to consumers and energy sector businesses. Jeff Luse makes the case that pro growth tax policies could bolster domestic energy security and spur innovation.

Gene technology is sometimes portrayed as a threat to the environment. Torbin Halbe begs to differ and explains how, like America, Europe should use gene technology to save its trees.
