To give you an example, the average starting wage as a VFX artist in SoCal is around $12 per hour. Imagine living off of that and being laid off every three months. It's unreal. That's the reason that so many are moving to Australia and India for work.
If they're paying people $12/hour (in California), they must be scraping the bottom of the barrel in terms of talent and ability. I wonder how good movies would look if designers were well paid.
Do you live in Australia too?
