Hollywood consists of thousands of individuals who are usually unemployed but from time-to-time find short-term work on a production, "IRS Examiners About to Zoom In on Hollywood" (Oct. 20). Annual incomes of these actors, painters, editors, Teamsters, camera operators, writers, hairdressers, carpenters, costumers, electricians, makeup artists, etc. are, at best, middle income. Unlike "employees" in most industries, these workers are truly independent and entrepreneurial. They have no company-administered health plans or retirement programs.
