imagine the director that put you out of business with all his scene changes... not even acknowledging you when he won the oscar.Wow,
Insane... So hard to imagine putting in all that work only to be laid off. But then again, it is the job of dreams. I guess it is fickle to begin with. They have the same issue in the video game business with overtime for little pay.
This is something that drives me crazy, trying to work in France. The rules say that I must be given 35 hours a week, and only 35 hours a week because anything more would be exploitation, so my employers are penalised heavily if they get me to do overtime (25% extra per hour for the hours 36-39, 50% extra from hour 40 upwards) The practical effect of this for me is a huge amount unpaid, unproductive time, e.g. the infamous two-hour lunch.its sad that you have to regulate it because there are circumstances that you would want to work longer and as soon as you start regulating stuff with bureaucracy you start taking away peoples liberty to make those decisions.
