30. TV Shows and Films made in the US
are one of the last bastions of union labor in the Western US.

The crews are well paid and have good benifits and retirement.

Its hard fucking work and they are compensated better than most. But they don't get paid unless they're working.

OWS basically shut down a union shop.

The teamsters, writers, directors, grips, electricians, craft services, set decorators, makeup & costomers,

actors (even the extras), everyone are union labor and I'm afraid

OWS shot themselves in the foot on this one.

I'd like to know more before I come to a conclusion.

I think perhaps the members of OWS who shut down that show may have reacted before thinking it through.

Who's to say the episode wouldn't be sympathetic to OWS?
