Even from a simple supply and demand point of view; there’s a lot of people who want in to the games industry, a large supply of potential employees, if you will, and this drives wages and working conditions down. [/quote:80b97c26a4]
Don’t know if i agree with this.
Yes, there are a lot of people who want in to the games industry, but how many of them are sufficiently qualified? Companies are pretty picky about who they employ as someone below par will falter pretty quickly in this trade due to the demands.

Also, when I was home a few weeks ago, I noticed an article in the paper saying that the average wage of an actor is Ireland is 5K. 5K!! They do it for the love of the job. We get paid significantly higher. I wouldn’t moan about the wages.
