Ever been stiffed by a deadbeat client? The folks at Freelancers Union have created an interactive site called the World’s Longest Invoice, where you can add your story and unpaid invoices to the tally, totaling more than $3.8 million at the time of writing this. It’s part of a campaign to raise awareness about the Freelancer Payment Protection Act, a bill in New York state that would help protect independent workers from nonpayment. Add your tale of woe on the site or on Twitter with the hashtag #GetPaidNotPlayed.
If you’re a creative freelancer, I hope you’re already reading the Creative Freelancer Blog! Ilise Benun and guest writers update it frequently with advice for creative professionals and freelancers. Ilise is also the host of the Creative Freelancer Conference, part of HOW Design Live. (The deadline for the early bird discount is Monday!)
