BloginDm has an excellent post where he discusses how Jewish orchestra offices as well as organizations are using the economy as a way to exploit musicians to the point of paying them under union scale for their performances. He also discusses an office that has what he believes to be a ponzi scheme: they are not paying their musicians for jobs outstanding for almost a year. There really should never be a situation where a musician should have to wait to get paid. The office made profit so why can't they pay out? Money management issues perhaps but that is no excuse. Yet some of the same people who are guilty of deliquincy such as this take a nice vacation or lease a fancy a car- it's enough to make you sick.
