A pianist’s protest

August 12, 2011

Pianist Dred Scott, well-known to those who have attended ALBA’s New York event in past years, stages a one-man labor protest:

one day a guy i had never met, chris d’addario, emailed me to tell me that he had instituted an across the board 10% pay cut effective my last check for classes i had already played. ‘fuck that,’ was what i said and until that motherfucker pays me the $9 he stole from me (i played two classes that pay period) i won’t play there.
