Nine Shift is predicting the same conflict in 2012 will continue in 2013.
Julie bought me my annual book purchase from 100 years. This year it is Jack London's 2013 novel on labor conflict - - just like we have today.
2013 will see:
-The corner was turned in 2012, with change now firmly on the agenda.
-The Tea Party will keep fighting for the last century. The Tea Party now on the decline, but not dead yet.
-We have not yet resolved a lot of issues, so the fight goes on.
-Labor and wages, like 100 years ago, will continue to be a big issue for Gen Y in 2013.
