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!
