Actors Equity study: Union work up
EmptyA new survey from Actors Equity shows that the union's members worked an average of 17.2 weeks in a 52-week period of 2005-06, up from 16.7 weeks during a similar span during 2004-05.
The uptick in work, however, didn't spread across the U.S. uniformly. Equity data show increases of 9.6% and 4.5%, respectively, in the Central and Western regions, while the Eastern region marked a dip of less than 1%.
The survey showed annual median earnings of $7,040 in the study period, with the Broadway and touring production contract representing the greatest employment generator.
