Notwithstanding higher labor costs (minimum wage hikes and paid sick leave mandates) along with new taxes being imposed by several states and local governments, consumer confidence remains solid and the economy continues to grow at healthier rates than it has for years – and we think that bodes quite well for business interests into the coming New Year. For our part, DDIFO is excited about some things we’ll offer in 2018 but at this time, we just want to wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
