This an industry wide problem.
We have been looking for Heidelberg XL 40inch pressman for almost 2 years.
Feeders too....we have decided to train from within but that is a slow and painful process also.
An aging workforce along with people just leaving the print business is a huge problem.
It has begun to be addressed be Heidelberg and others by taking younger kids into training programs but it's a little too late.

Same thing in Prepress. We advertised for a prepress person to take my place. Only one applicant so far and more than likely the last one. And that one is 62 years old. Used to at least get design school graduates to apply but not anymore.

Face it. We're a dying breed and nobody knows how much we're needed until we're gone.

I think the PIA has seen this coming for a long time. I used to be on an advisory board and then I was volunteered to take materials (like a VHS tape and a few visuals) around to high schools to get kids excited about a career in printing. I would talk about salaries of foremen, benefits, good career option even without higher education etc...
The idea was that printers were aging out and there were too few newbies to fill the pipeline. And this was back in the early to mid-ninties.
Take me to your ladder.
I'll see your leader later.

I've been meaning to get in touch with a former sales guy who got onto the board of the local PIA chapter and see what (if any) efforts are in place to refill the workforce. I'd wager there's lots of Initiatives and very few Candidates.
