I too would like to see some links - as well as some that prove that Warner's are in fact going to underpay the workers of NZ. Oddly enough, from the dozens of articles I have read, it seems the workers on The Hobbit will be paid way above the minimum requirement, with many many amazing benefits. Strange that through all of my reading, I have failed to find all the different articles you've apparently been reading claiming the exact opposite. I would love to see the proof you have!

Also, it is within the film industry of NZ that will have a clarification of what makes one an "employee" or "contractor." Seems to me this does not undermine any worker of New Zealand's rights or is a "step back" in progress for the labor laws of NZ. Seems to me that it is rather a protection of rights for both types of workers within the film industry. Maybe you can give me some more insight, specific links and articles that will prove to me otherwise.

Until then, I see you like many on these boards do: a nay-saying dissenter. I don't see any value or proof behind your arguments - simply negative statements with nothing to back them up. I will put more thought into what you say when you can show me all of the links, articles, and reasons that prove Warner's strongholded the NZ democracy to reduce labor laws so they can get away with treating their workers like slaves. I have seen absolutely not one shred of evidence for this belief.
