I understand the work is hard for say construction workers, but my brothers in a union, he makes $86ph for Saturday, and gets time and a half on THAT if he goes 5 minuts after 8 hours. And even then they complain "IT's NOT ENOUGH"
Now these guys don't have it so bad, and there is no shortage of people who would love to write out there. So to the strikers, shut up, do your job. And if you don't like the companies policies, thats very common, but you know in America, no one makes you do anything, so quit!
Go work some crappy job like most of us do, then whine about that one too, and I'll take your job.
And thats just it, you're being comishioned to do work for someone else, thats it. If you want further royalties on something you do, then do your own thing, only then can you call your own shots.
Shame on you. They're writers, and you sound like a coder. You both sit in chairs all day, puching keyboards for what are both sickly, oily moneywhores like Josh Larson. You complain about YOUR bosses taking your money you earn them from your fluffy ass-cushion job, and then in the same breath tell these guys to cowboy up.
Your boss might make $100,000 this year off your 1337 skills. Imagine if he made $20 million? THAT'S part of why there's a writer strike on.
If you want to call your own shots, then go start your own internet company!! And the first thing you'll do is hire some kid to do some coding...
And BTW, construction guys DON'T get enough, because they have the riskiest damn job in the world (indluding road guys). If you don't actually die on the job, the mesothelioma or other industrial cancers will.
The circle of life...
