Printing Industries of America Statement on Health Care Bill
PITTSBURGH, Pa.—Printing Industries of America (www.printing.org) urged the U.S. House of Representatives to reject the health care reform legislation that was passed on March 21.
In a letter to all U.S. Representatives, Printing Industries noted that America’s printing and graphic communications industry has a long and proud tradition of offering quality employee benefits to workers and their families. Today, more than 90 percent of graphic communications companies provide benefits to a workforce numbering 900,000. The letter noted, though, that access to affordable health insurance is a growing crisis plaguing Printing Industries of America’s member companies, and, in particular, the small printers that make up the vast majority of the industry.
