They share any information that’s available concerning our business or things that might affect our business. And I think they also are very effective in helping you understand why you need to look at things differently if you’re not looking at them the right way.

Change.

 
It’s a fact of life. And in business, how you react to change can mean the difference between success and failure.
 

 
But that doesn’t mean we’re always comfortable with change. Sometimes even that slight fear of change — of the “unknown” — prevents us from making decisions that can have a tremendous positive impact.
 
 
 

“…Are there going to be any surprises? Did you ask all the right questions? What business owners and entrepreneurs are very concerned about is if they didn’t ask all the right questions, somebody may not volunteer the right answer, and you wake up with a real problem on your hands.”

 
—Robb Mulberger, President, NRI Staffing

Legislative Updates

 
It’s only half as much as the increase this year, but Ohio’s minimum wage will get a boost on Jan. 1, 2013. The minimum wage will rise 15 cents, to $7.85 an hour, in the new year, the Ohio Department of Commerce announced yesterday. For tipped employees, the new minimum will be $3.93 per hour, an increase of 8 cents an hour.
 
 
Washington state’s minimum wage increases by 15 cents to $9.19 an hour starting on New Year’s Day, the state Department of Labor & Industries announced Friday.
 
The state’s minimum wage is adjusted each year for inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index over the preceding 12 months. This past year, it is up 1.67 percent. The yearly recalculation is required by Initiative 688, which Washington voters passed in 1998.
 
 
The N.C. General Assembly recently passed E-Verify legislation that will become effective as follows: 
 
  • Effective Oct. 1, 2012—employers with 500 or more employees will be required to use E-Verify to check work authorization for all new hires. 
  • Effective Jan. 1, 2013—employers with 100 or more employees will be required to use E-Verify to check work authorization for all new hires.
