In the 11 years or so I've been living in NYC, I've been out of work for probably 3 years of it. Now while that may seem like a story the next NYS governer could exploit in a campagin ("Joe P. has years of experience and a college degree, but can't hold onto a NYS job because of the aristocrats in Parliament..."), that is just the nature of the TV business.
TV freelance is a bitch. Don't get into it. By all means, DON'T GET INTO IT! The months out of work can add up and then subtract from your back account quickly. I'd have to live off of $400 a week from NYS and about 80% of it would go to my rent, leaving me with very little money to spend.no comments
