Seriously?

Warners strong-armed the NZ government into changing its laws in a way that makes it easier for Warners to underpay, under-treat, and under-give-a-flying-#$%^ for Kiwis working on its films! You really believe that this agreement to "strategically partner" with the NZ government is some kind of major concession which shows they have heart?

I am pleased that these films will be made in NZ, and I am happy that all the Kiwis who feared for their jobs will keep them. However, the cost of doing so was, IMO, unacceptable. I think the NZ governemnt should have driven a much harder bargain. They capitulated in a way that is nearly unforgivable.
