Crunch time is not abnormal in this kind of industry all you have to do is look at Japans anime industry as its not unheard of for animators to sleep at their desks as an example.
The Pay issue is a major issue but some people were looking and in the state of texas there is some legal grounds to not pay them for the overtime. I dont know fully as I really havent looked into it beyond a little.
The big issue is RT was a small company that exploded in people. Back when RvB was their start point they werent more then a dozen or so people. Now they are easily in the hundreds.
They exploded and they took on more projects then they really can handle probably the reason why Chibi hasnt come back for example.
When Companies do this there is a LOT of growing pains as things get figured out and people try to balance the work vs the needs. Its ALWAYS a messy situation.
We have seen this as many of the animators for RWBY are also working on GenLock and that has to be causing issues.
I am disappointed this happened but I also know people are saying RT is going to be destroyed by this and I am just shaking my head no at them. Yes some serious changes are going to happen but its not the death toll for RT far from it and no despite what people say RT is not going to sell their IPs especially to shane. Shane doesnt even want to talk about his letter anymore for example he just tries to move on and not discuss it at all.
So all things considered its one of those things that shouldnt happen did happen and now needs to be fixed.
