Artists Are Workers!

Capitalism is the problem, but until that problem is solved, artists must be compensated for their work, which is real WORK, and this is a smaller part of a larger labor issue which concerns all working-class people; not paying artists for their work is what caused and continues to widen the massive class gap in the fine art and professional world. Activists can help by supporting measures that pay artists for their work, and by NOT supporting: artists who work for free, and businesses who use creative labor while not compensating fairly.
