There was this company that I worked for but they didn't pay me and they wanted me to come work for them again and I said "maybe, please contact me with the details" and they DIDN'T and then they had another opening and the director has now blocked me on Facebook.  I have no idea why.  Did I do something unprofessional?  Did they somehow associate real life me with this account and read that I'm unhappy about not being paid? (which, I guess, got me in trouble).  Did I just do a terrible job on set and they don't have time for me?  Did I offend someone?  I will never know.  I may also never get paid at any future jobs in this industry because X is connected to Y, who owns half the media in this country, so if I pissed him off, I'm screwed.  Or maybe I didn't do anything at all and it's just, well, that's life.

Seriously, how do people function in the world?  How do people earn money at their jobs?  Because I can't find a job that pays money and will actually hire me. 

Also, I might be being too emotional, but I'm kind of hurt that this is how I was treated.  Seriously, I'm mature enough to hear it if I screwed up - I would LIKE to hear it, so I don't repeat the mistake.  I don't even know if this is my screw up or just that's how it goes.  And if it is my fault, what did I do?  WTF is going on?
I'm wondering what people's thoughts are about this:



Most of it sounds pretty good to me, and it actually pinpoints where things go wrong with some movements I can think of (eg, Occupy Wall Street never had a distilled mission statement, most intersecting social justice movements try to be everything to everyone and thus turn into a comment section, etc).  So, it's nice to look at how things can actually be focused.

The problem is, you can't do it alone.  By its nature, social activism requires getting people together, so what do you do to avoid... you know... people?  Like, how do you have a specific focus and keep it on target, because once you have people of multiple perspectives working together, it goes one of two ways.  Either it completely fragments and people within the group end up fighting each other rather than furthering their cause(s), or it goes so unified that it turns into a "You're Not One Of Us" kind of movement that attacks prospective allies or can even turn into a sort of... nationalism?  Not the right word, I know, but I needed something more powerful than "clique."

Anyway, if anyone figures it out, well... congrats.

Also just wanted to share this.  I'm tired of people thinking I'm rich because, well... but also this.

I've worked as a PA, script supervisor, set dec, and sub-PA-level gopher.  Always unpaid.  Seeing this list and the disparity even amongst paid people is kind of a piss-off.  And it's not like film is the only industry that does this.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

And I just wanted to end with something happy.
