In commiefornia, after I think 12 or 14 hour days they get double time which the trades people love. Yeah it's tough work, but they get a lot so who cares.

These trades people are being underpaid in the first place. After 12 hours of solid work in a trade (6-8 even if it's REAL work), you are a walking dead zombie who will die of heart attack if it's kept up long term... not to mention becoming mentally retarded in the meantime to the point that you don't realise that having to work for 12 hours just to reach double bubble is a bad fucking deal.

What's more messed up is the following quote:

Quote:and to allow workers looking to earn more to work longer hours.

It's a sad state of affairs when predatory capitalism (I have nothing against capitalism by the way) devalues a nation's people/money to the point where they need to do over-time to get by.

You need to read up on how much union'd guys in the entertainment industry make.
$35-45/hr (with full benefits) and mind you this is in USD not AUD since you guys quite literally make 70 cents to our dollar.

They aren't underpaid in the slightest.

Whether 45 bucks an hour is "good" is a matter of perspective. What is the real estate value over there in Hollywood and how high is the cost of living? How much money does a film make at the box office and what percentage do the set construction grunts get out of that from their hourly pay?

Now throw in the non-union trades who are possibly making a lot less (and also possibly more) and then forget the about the entertainment industry bubble and think real world (including outside the US) and you get the bigger picture. Where does all the money go?
