    Interesting results

    I wonder if our industry is looking at a shortage of copier techs in the future?

    Based on the results there doesnt seem to be too many new techs in the field and us 20-30 year vets are approaching retirement.

    Its either that or us older ones just out number the young here on the net

    Get let go without so much as a "Thanks, sucker" and have their territory split up amongst the rest of the poor bastards that are already overworked, underpaid and undertrained.

    But that probably won't happen to you guys...

    Started in this trade in 1971, saw the first plain paper copier in the UK a sharp SF710 (crap & heavy) after the zerox patent came off, have now worked for 9 years as tech support manager for a manufacturer.
    Quite a few gray hairs on the roof but still in a paid job, 10 years to go if I dont win the lottery first, then you wont see me for dust.
