In solidarity with my fellow scribes in the screenwriters’ guild, I am staging a job action effective Monday. I can no longer ignore the role that my employer, Time Warner, plays in the exploitation of creative labor and, hence, to prove to them that they are nothing without content providers, I am walking off the job. Solidarity forever!
Also, the job action happens to coincide with a week’s vacation that I have had planned for some time. But still: Solidarity forever!
I may check in for a post or two; I may not. However, Robo-James–who has no sense of empathy and whose children can be fed for a year on 4 ‘D’ batteries–has agreed to scab for the Man in my place. Needless to say, I will be receiving no profit participation for his work.
