Printing Industry To Small For US Department of Labour
WASHINGTON—
 

Bureau of Labor Statistics unit of the U.S. Department of Labor announcement that commercial printing, screen printing, and print support activities for printing have become “too small or too concentrated to be tracked” in the Current Employment Statistics database.According to the Printing Industries of America (PIA) approximately 800,000 workers in the printing, packaging, and publishing industry who's jobs are relevant to the nation’s manufacturing economy.

 

PIA has urged the Bureau of Labor Statistics multiple times over a number of years to revise its outdated definition of the printing industry. Print has and will continue to evolve as a media and printers will continue to transition with a diverse mix of processes, products, and ancillary services. PIA  said will extend yet another offer to the BLS to encourage the agency to rethink its attitude toward the printing industry and to possibly reintroduce a new category of “commercial print” using a modern, real-world definition that reflects the industry’s economic value.” Statistics Canada have not as of yet changed thier reporting on the Canadian printing industry .
