You should be in Chicago. I work with three companies in Chicago, and am very close to a fourth (I’d work with them, but I’m not a lady). I have never seen them hire an actor from New York.
I don’t necessarily argue with the basic gist of this piece, but I wanted to go to bat for Chicago.
Also, I’m leaning more and more to the side that this kind of complaining — not based on any facts — isn’t really helpful. Of course, I’ll probably come back to it when I’m talking about race and ethnicity, but still.
