WIRTW #298 (the “thankful” edition)


My daughter’s homework last night was to interview five people about what they are thankful for, and summarize the interviews in a short book. She chose to ask her brother, her grandparents, her guitar teacher, and our dog (bonus points for second-grade creativity). Since I did not get the chance to participate, I thought I’d use this space to list what I’m thankful for this year.

A loving and supportive wife, two amazing children, health and happiness, that my children still have all four of their grandparents, doggie daycare, my firm (which has been overwhelmingly supportive of this blog for six and a half years), and all of my subscribers, readers, and followers.

If you’re so inclined, feel free to share your list in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #OELBThankful

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I’ll have fresh content Monday and Tuesday, and will be taking the rest of next week off.

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:


Social Media & Workplace Technology

HR & Employee Relations

Wage & Hour

Labor Relations
