    Press Technicians - 10-year growth projection: -15.9%

    Total number of U.S. workers: 50,800
    The phrase "Stop the presses!" is taking on a whole new meaning as more readers reach for digital versions of books, newspapers and magazines. As such, workers at various rungs of the printing process are facing a drop in demand. Prepress technicians, who prepare publications for the printing press, are particularly vulnerable as their functions are becoming more automated or being picked up by office employees. - Source Kiplinger – Thu, Apr 4, 2013

    Sentiment: Hold

    • "Prepress technicians, who prepare publications for the printing press, are particularly vulnerable as their functions are becoming more automated or being picked up by office employees."
      Laughable.
      Wonder what printing operations Kiplinger is referring to and where ( Bangladesh?).
      Wonder what publications Kiplinger is referring to? The PennySaver perhaps?
      Not that I wouldn't be surprised if this is actually happening (I would not put anything past a CEO of a printing plant), but simply for comic's sake - I would love to see these so-called "office employees" artistic skill set at say - I mean when they are not too busy sorting paperclips - their hand at photo retouching automobiles or fashion in Photoshop, working the difficult nuances of an InDesign document and at balancing color for press.

      In fact, I would pay-per-view just watch this.
