To me this underscores the need for unions in this industry.
There's a whole host of "new" tech related fields that need to be unionized. Especially on the art end.

This is really a problem in general, the rate of unionized employment is something like 15% these days in North America when it was higher than 50% just a few decades ago. The power of the corporation keeps increasing which isn't necessarily bad but unfortunately with the employment situation being so dire workers rights often just trampled all over.

The unions themselves haven't been much help either, they're often fighting for older worker pensions and ignoring their younger base. They also seem to think they can still strong arm companies as if this was the pre-Regan era which results in huge battles with companies and an unsympathic/hostile public attitude due to poor PR. Corporations will often fire hundreds of workers at the whiff of union formation and public opinion rarely sides with the workers anymore.
