What jobs do they have?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011, spray paint artists earned an average of $26 an hour—a wage nearly double the average household income in the U.S.
How many employees are there at the studio each day?
The Portland office is filled with about eight full-time employees working on the show.
Where do the pieces for the show come from? A few people at one time, or most of the time?
Artist-and-producer Sam Taylor estimates that 30 percent or more will come from the show, and “the majority from our own backyard.” But he also thinks “a little bit of local art” is important.
An anti-gun lawmaker made his way back to the District last week and held a public hearing on Capitol Hill to give the House Judiciary Committee a chance to do its job and pass an ordinance to ban all semiautomatic weapons in DC, including any military-style rifles.
As the D.C. Council was about to vote on a bill to do exactly that last May, District resident Mark Cohen was murdered in the street. His wife told The Daily Signal that he was waiting to meet to discuss firearms regulations in the Capitol.
Cohen, a longtime District resident and gun owner, also served on the D.C. Council. When DC Council member Kenyatta Johnson asked him to make the recommendation on the city’s ban on military-style firearms, Cohen, a Democrat, gave a detailed speech that is still being circulated to lawmakers today.
The speech, which Cohen wrote down and circulated to committee members, says a ban on military-style weapons is necessary:
There has been too many other deaths on our streets as a result of our failed failed laws and a failed broken gun laws system. These guns are so easily modified to do some horrific murder with little to no training or training with the weapons that they will probably kill a couple of bystanders in the process. If the current gun laws in America do not change, more innocent lives will be lost and the American dream will be denied to countless victims.
The District bans military-style and semiautomatic rifles. Other than that, Cohen wrote that DC can do much better than what exists.
After the hearing, Cohen told The Daily Signal that he believes what he has presented to them is the best version of his legislation he has developed.
