lol we all know that who dat trying to act like he don't work for wc, is on our boards way too much to not work here. He just too busy squirming in his seat right now, on here looking for some info, and hoping his plant don't shut down. He's too big a smart ass and too involved in the discussion boards not to be worried. So, who dat, which facility do you work at?

Hey dude, Take some grammar lessons and learn how to spell. It might help you in the job market.

You all forget that when we were the former World Color, we had a base to build on with 43,000 employees - and many plants - Quebecor destoyed that, and now Quad will further diminish this to less than 30,000. But, print will never go away, despite what is done. If we all do our best to support the print media, it will not go away. Just my thoughts

I agree - print will never entirely go away. One other thing is important to remember. If our underlying PRIOR companies (such as ALCO Gravure, Alden Press, Arcata, W. F. Hall, Texas Color, Providence Gravure, and many others) had not been "rode hard and put up wet" by their respective owners and management, do you think all of this would have happened?

Prayers to U all I knew some old timers and Iam sure prior classmates worked there. I gave my bussiness up a few years ago had cut way back. I never thought I would ever be at an employers mercy again and here I am also.Its rough but look ahead scrimp and figure out how to survive and start over.
