Theater Workers fight for fair wages. (Repost

Musea Readers, For many months I’ve suggested to The Dissident Rag on facebook, that they include theater workers in their discussion of low wage workers. Today 8/31/15 they did, by reposting the blog entry below.

Thanks to them, and may it force Hollywood to be a part of the low wage debate!

Personally, I worked at the Inwood Theater in Dallas from 1990-2014. The last years it was owned by billionaire Mark Cuban. His policy was the same as all theater policies towards workers. Lowest wages, few if any full time workers – which would eliminate most benefits, etc. etc.

There is no reason for the film industry to be just about the only industry to get away with this – specially when Hollywood goes out of it’s way to brag about how many millions they made in box office every week. See link for more.
