latest in offset printing technology, and disc to fuji plate stripping. I also
established full time benefits for the part time/full time staff. A
complicated printer & bookmaker. A fast paced job whereof everything was
multi-documented in hard copy, forklift. I was fired in a corporate shuffle
but not before I achieved the respect of my workmates, alot
of valuable knowledge, and put an end to perpetual part time status.
