This study was undertaken because the investigator, being an instructor in the graphic arts, was very much concerned with the opportunities for young people aspiring to enter the printing industry. The investigator had often been confronted with questions concerning reward in printing for ambitious and promising young men who entered the field. Answers given were not always completely satisfactory of students or the investigator, and attempts to become familiar with the subject proved to be unsuccessful. Preliminary research showed that the industrial promotions in general received some attention, but no literature was found that dealt with the printing industry and its policies on promotion. The investigator was specifically interested in the criteria that employers and employees thought important in considering an employee for promotion.
