A Call to End Gender Pay Bias in the Entertainment Industry
A just-released study commissioned by IATSE Local 871 with Working Ideal shows that there is a huge wage gap for historically female-majority crafts including Production Coordinators, Assistant Production Coordinators, Art Department Coordinators, and Script Supervisors, that needs to be brought to the attention of those in positions of power.
While these positions are central to a production running smoothly and being kept on track, workers are not paid on par with their counterparts on the crew. In fact, the scale rates for Art Department Coordinators and Assistant Production Coordinators are barely above minimum wage.
It’s time to close the wage gap for #ReelEquity today.
