Good News for You Extras Working Matt Damon’s “Contagion” Movie: You’re Getting a Pay Rise – Now, $80 Per Day

Turns out that you extras working on the local Contagion shoots are going to get $80 per working day instead of the $64 that Rich King Productions was talking about the other day.

Simply, the people at JKP were unaware that S.F. has its own minimum wage of $9.92 per hour.

Anyway they’re back down in Los Angeles now, but they’ve just sent a message to me how they going to pay $80 for starters and then more after the first eight hours, if necessary.

Break a leg!
