hell of a time to be in entertainment

::crawls out from under rock::

As those of you who pay attention to the news may or may not know, IATSE Local One (Broadway stage technicians) has gone on strike. Add that to the Writer’s Guild strike, and it’s a hell of time to be in the entertainment industry.

I can’t say that I blame anyone involved in either of these strikes, but it’s a shame that the parties have been unable or unwilling to come to an agreement before this measure was taken.

Regardless, I’m going to be paying close attention to how these strikes play out and the changes made to their respective contracts, because I know that it will have important ramifications for all of us working in the industry, especially those of us on a contract basis.
