Can you get a college degree in prepress? Or, excuse me, digital production? Job postings like that make me so angry. For the time you have to put in to become adept at these programs on both platforms and then they're going to offer you $15/hr. It's crazy.
Especially if minimum wage goes up to $13 hr.


Never gonna happen.

Washington State just raised the minimum to $15. That's the min. in Australia also and one of the reasons it didn't go tits up when the rest of the world did.

What never made any sense to me is a dezinger with a degree knows NOTHING about printing, and makes $50/hr and does nothing but schmooze clients. A prepresser knows everything, but has no degree, fixes everything the dezinger does, and makes the client happy, but makes half as much and does three times as much work. In what world does that make sense?

That's really fucked up, man.

In the world of ad agencies, for one. Some of that salaries they pay people at my Wife's place are downright obscene, and many of those designers are early in their careers too.

You guys are totally reading this wrong. It's 'fine' as in not 'thick' or 'ultra fine,' or 'chisel tip.'
