wage-slave

 

Wage slaves have really got it made. At least they have the security of knowing that each day they can show up for work, and they are paid a steady amount of money. I’m a filmmaker. This concept of wage work rarely happens to us. You have to go out and find your own work each couple of weeks. Usually the only people looking to hire a “video specialist”  are corporations and small businesses interested in either advertising or using video to simplify presentations, and they pay you a fourth as much as if you were being paid by the hour working for them. You don’t get coffee breaks, lunch breaks, severance packages, retirement packages, or pensions.
