If it is done right, everyone wins and you stop the senseless undercutting of prices while getting better working conditions for our Prague colleagues.
I know this goes against the protectionist attitudes of the AFM, but I believe it to be more fruitful to embrace the international community as colleagues.
It is counter productive to consider our eastern european friends scabs.
Now, seattle, that is a different story alltogether
Ha! Isn't today supposed to be the end of the world????
It's a nice thought. It will never happen. If the AFM can't agree and come to a consensus with it's OWN members in LA, they will never come to an agreement nationwide, and never come to an agreement with Seattle, and FOR SURE never come to any international agreements.
But it was a nice thought. I'm with you, the AFM needs to adjiust to a new millineum, but it's doubtful they will ever take on an "international" viewpoint.
