    Poverty Situation among the Ethnic Minorities / Dog Shelters facing a funding shortfall

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about living standards of the territory's ethnic minorities. The Equal Opportunities Commission is calling on the government to take steps to improve the job prospects of people from minority communities after a recent report detailed high levels of poverty. Among South Asians, the poverty rate in 2016 stood at 23 percent. Most of those affected ​​ were working in low-paid jobs. A lack of proficiency in Chinese and English in some cases was cited as one factor. So what should be done to support people from ethnic minority groups in terms of education and employment? Leave a message, or email us with your thoughts at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, stray dog shelters face a funding shortfall.

    Legco’s Rules of Procedures / Self-service library

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Nicholas Gordon

    On Friday's Backchat, changing the rules at Legco. Pro-establishment legislators are taking advantage of the disqualification of pan-dems to seek to change the Rules of Procedure. They say they want to increase the efficiency of Legco, and to avoid wasteful filibustering. The democratic camp says the changes would reduce the legislature's functions and powers, and open the door to controversial laws like Article 23 legislation. Is Legco working properly?Will the changes help or hinder? Is it fair to change the rules now - or is filibustering an abuse that should be stopped whatever it takes? Call us on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, unmanned libraries.
