IATSE Strike

It's been a while since I have posted- more on that later.

In the meantime, here is an outstanding timeline about the IATSE Local One strike on Broadway:

I will write my thoughts and opinions about this strike (as well as the WGA strike) very soon. Until then, please support these hardworking union employees. Thank you.

  1. Really curious to hear your comments on the various strikes. I know how far left you tend to lean!

    While I don't know all the issues in the IATSE strike, I'll say that I'm not sure I agree with their action. Too many times I've been on the wrong end of having to hire someone for a 4-hour mini just because I needed to plug in a practical (exaggerating slightly here for emphasis, of course). That's not a case of better working conditions or job security (which I believe in), it is blatant waste.

    On the other hand I'm all for the WGA action. It is a no-brainer that this Internet thing is going to be big some day and the writers should get paid their fair share of revenue from this medium. I understand that the issue is complicated, but come on producers (remember that I am one!) figure it out and offer something fair.

    These 4 hour minis are so we don't get screwed on having someone book you for one hours work when you may have had other offers that would pay better. It is all about working for enough money to live on.
