Mayor Bass issues statement regarding the entertainment industry

En español

LOS ANGELES — Mayor Karen Bass today issued the following statement:

“Los Angeles is experiencing a summer of struggle to make ends meet. In all industries — education, hospitality, goods delivery or entertainment — Angelenos deserve fair contracts. Whether you’re a writer who has been on strike for more than 72 days or an actor who has been on strike for 72 hours, wages and health benefits to afford housing, food and the basic necessities to survive should be a minimum requirement in discussions. A strong business sector is essential for our city to become affordable for working families once again. This is a historic inflection point for our city as our entertainment industry experiences economic pressure and business uncertainty. A fair and equitable solution must be reached.”
