VIDEOBLOCKS: DON’T CUT PEOPLE’S PAY IN HALF!

This petition made change with 106 supporters!


How would you feel if your employer told you that your paycheck will be cut by 50%? That’s exactly what happened to all stock footage contributors to Videoblocks.com when CEO TJ Leonard sent an email on July 16, 2018 informing contributors that their commissions going forward will be cut in HALF!

Videoblocks likes to call itself “the most contributor-friendly agency there is.” This painful betrayal in the name of profit shows that’s a lie, and now contributors must stand up to protect their income from CEOs who exploit and squeeze the artists who make this industry possible.

Please sign to show support! If you are a Videoblocks contributor, pledge to either delete your portfolio or refuse to upload new content unless Videoblocks recants this paycut! If you are a stock footage buyer, pledge to buy stock footage from more artist-friendly sites like Pond5.com, where contributors are allowed to set the sales price.

Together we can send a clear message to CEOs that economic exploitation of freelance workers is just as unacceptable as unfair treatment of salaried employees. Thank you!

You can also contact CEO TJ Leonard directly at tj@videoblocks.com and the Videoblocks support team at contributor@storyblocks.com.
