Stop the presses: Commercial printers and other vanishing jobs the Labor Department can't track anymore

February 11, 2019

As of this month, "printer" and "screen printer" are no longer official jobs - at least as far as the Labor Department's flagship release is concerned. The same goes for "printing support" jobs such as platemaking and prepress work. Each year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics takes stock of industries that have become too small to be counted as a separate category in the database accompanying its widely watched monthly report on U.S. non-farm payrolls.
