Being a pressman is not exactly ‘publishing’ ~ it’s more a vanishing semiskilled trade ~ the whole printing industry is going down the tubes
I was just comparing what a mid 20s slacker thinks is toiling vs. an honest (but disappearing) job.
Speaking of it being a disappearing trade, the San Jose Mercury News has reduced the ink in the Sunday comics to almost nothing. They are all washed out and faded now. Another sign of a dying industry.
