So, where's the developer groups, the programmer unions?

We've been through this before and it's a bad idea.

You already mentioned SAG. The other movie unions are a better example, but SAG still works. Do you know how those work? Short-term contracts. No one in a movie-related union (and the same goes for theater-related unions and, in most cases, music related unions) has a long term contract. Instead they're hired for a project.

When the project ends, they're out of work until they find a new project.

Entertainment is an industry unions just don't fit with extremely well. At least right now there's a tiny bit of job security after a project ships. With unions there'd be zero. We're probably working towards that in general, anyway...

But with unions you don't get 6 months of uncompensated crunch time before you get fired.
