Don’t Fear the Indie is about what it might be like to have your own income independent of your regular job. When an employer gets nervous about a potential employee who gets income on his/her own, it’s scary.
Nothing, it seems, scares employers more than employees with independent income.
Why? Because independent income removes one of the primary levers employers use to control their employees: the paycheck.
It basically complements what David St. Lawrence says about corporate life. The days of long careers at a corporation that takes care of you are long gone, and the only really safe (and sane!) thing to do is work for yourself.
