May Day

Tomorrow is May 1st. A massive general strike day being organized by the Occupy Movement. If you’re un-employed  or employed and able take the day (or even longer) off from work please get out there to show your support in the fight against your company that’s slowly chiseling away at your benefits while sending your jobs overseas.

If you’re like much of the middle class just one step away from being lower class and have so little disposable income that you’re simply too scared or just not willing to take off any work, at very least please don’t be a subservient happy consumer and restrain from shopping (an exception would be your small, local business of course) for all of May for crap you don’t need in the first place.

Gerneral strikes have been hugely effective through history for making the corrupt system which only serves the 1% be forced to listen to the people and have made major advances in forcing the regression machine in a progressive direction as more and more people realize they’re being forced to the bottom.

    All I can say is I’m, pretty sure I was the only vfx artist that was out there, and I was out there for civil rights more than vfx. Racial profiling will end before there’s any organization within the industry. Nuff said.

    I did mention it a few times, but it was very brief w/ other worker unions such as Iatse 44. But I can’t be the only one.

    Stop complaining that your job has been sent overseas… if someone from India or China can do your job for 1/10th of the price then you have a problem and might want to consider a new career. Business is about making profits, not ensuring a dime a dozen artist gets to drive his Audi to work. The market is self regulating, if you’re being replaced by equally competent talent from overseas then clearly there is a disconnect between the pay rate and skills of state side vfx work.

  6. Thanks for the thoughts you have provided here. Also, I believe there are several factors
    that really keep your car insurance policy premium all the way down.
    One is, to consider buying cars and trucks that are inside good listing of car insurance companies.
    Cars which might be expensive are usually more at risk of
    being stolen. Aside from that insurance coverage is also good value of
    your car or truck, so the more costly it is, then the higher your premium you only pay.

    flush out all the unnecessary water because it knows that the system has enough water.

    of dollars iffy procedure fraught with the risk of bruising,
    swelling, lumps and bumps and temporary benefits may
    not seem likely, discerning person. Next, nudge
    the leg into an appropriate location and fill it with a dark blue color to resemble
    jeans or a similar color depending on what type of character you’re making.

    respond as well a second or tenth time to things they’ve read or seen before.

    offer something clickable for them, for instance,

    We all know by now, that when you make a habit of connecting
    with potential customers little and often, on topics that they care about, you
    increase the likelihood of them doing business with you.
    Founded in March 2010, Pinterest has become the
    fastest-growing social media site on the web, gaining 145% more users since January
    2012 alone. I make boards of animals, quotes, or color combinations.
