How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

There are two industries now, mainstream and independent. For musician's to have better lives and better paying gigs, etc. there needs to be a national awakening to this concept and people need to support their communities and the artists in those communities. Regardless if they're the musician, the sound guy, the live artist, the visual artist, the dancers, the promoters, the club owners, etc. Because we all need each other to survive and grow.
