Opportunities Are Everywhere: Dirty Jobs Mike Rowe and CES' Gary Shapiro Sound Off In Newly Released Issue of Innovation & Technology Today(December 18, 2013)
Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Two of Americas premier business innovators, Dirty Jobs creator and host Mike Rowe, and bestselling author and Computer Electronics Association CEO Gary Shapiro, sound off on jobs, new technology and growth areas in the Winter 2013 issue of Innovation & Technology Today.
The quarterly magazine is on sale at newsstands nationwide. It is also available digitally on iTunes, Zinio and a special discounted subscription directly from the publisher, Innovative Properties Worldwide.
During an exclusive interview with I & T Today publisher Charles Warner, Rowe sounded a clarion call: there are 3 million unfilled skill jobs in a United States dealing with millions of unemployed workers. "I dont think the skills gap is a problem; I think its a symptom of what we value," Rowe says. "Somewhere along the way, weve stopped valuing hard work and skilled labor.
"For people willing to learn a useful skill and work hard, opportunities are everywhere," he added.
Shapiro, the head of Computer Electronics Showcase, Americas premier electronics trade show, sees new technologies as a growth opportunity. "The first big innovation is the Internet of Things, or connected objects that will help us lead more integrated lives," he says in I&T Today. "Also, were fast approaching an era where cars drive us, not the other way around. At the 2014 CES, nine of the top 10 car makers will be showing their latest innovations in driverless car technology."
