Video Description

A video featuring an ASL interview with Janie Golightly, an older white woman seated in a darkened studio.


Janie Golightly: As time went on, technology started to change. They started cutting manpower and things started to change. There was more training for that, and then they froze employment. That meant that there was no need for subs anymore. They asked if the subs wanted to change to sit, meaning they would have a permanent position. Many of us said yes. When you’re younger you’re more carefree, but as we’d gotten older, we cherished our jobs. There was a job guarantee - a job guaranteed. That’s unheard of nowadays. We valued the security of those jobs. They were rare. That’s why Deaf professional printers had a future.
