This comic was commissioned after I was inspired, in part, after reading a blog entry from: http://temporaryattorney.blogspot.com/2009/08/upton-sinclair-of-temp-lawyer-hell.html, and similar experiences all over the web and legal blogs.
A quote from the entry:
they crammed 120 people into a basement room that NYC fire code rated for 80. This was in 2005. Like steerage passengers on the Titanic, we labored in the bowels of the building, right alongside the boilers and HVACequipment. Lacking air conditioning and adequate ventilation… [a] cockroach problem soon erupted due to the crumbs and food garbage strewn about the cellar floor, which was treated with multiple Raidroach fogger bombs… [w]e were paid $21 an hour, straight time, and required to work from 9 am to 11 pm seven days a week. Forbidden to use the firm’s lavish upstairs restrooms, they had all 120 of us split a pair of airplane sized-bathrooms that were on the Concourse level under the Rock Center, open to the public and a favorite bathing spot for the homeless.
This isn’t a cartoon as much as it is legal satire. The essence of greedy partners at mega firms riding the backs of young bright lawyers forced into contract work is captured well here by Kate Scurfield, ,a brilliant cartoonist from the UK with a knack for detail turned my vision into a reality.
You can also buy this cartoon on greeting cards if you just want to send your friends an inexpensive laugh!
