Lessons for everyone in Equity’s fight against low pay - w/ Charlotte Bence
British film, tv and theatre is a big, big success story; a source of national pride, entertaining and audiences across the world and earning millions for the UK. But why do so many performers work in such precarious conditions – and what can be done about it. In the latest Unions 21 podcast, Becky Wright and Simon Sapper talk with Charlotte Bence of Equity about the “professionally made, professionally paid” campaign targeting low pay in the sector – and discover that the organising tools used here could, should and do have a resonance across the economy, irrespective of industry. A Makes-You-Think production.
