Musicians sue 'The Voice' producer for not paying wages

The American Federation of Musicians filed a federal lawsuit against the maker of 'The Voice,' alleging the popular program short changed its members.

WGA members strongly endorsed a three-year contract that increases residual payments for high-budget shows on streaming services, among other gains.Among the claims in its suit, the AFM said producers used incorrect wage scales to calculate compensation and failed to pay premium rates for work performed beyond an eight-hour span, or on holidays or Sundays.

In addition, the AFM said the production had also not paid residuals or made the necessary benefit contributions required under a contract that was extended in 2016 until a new agreement was reached.The largest musicians union in the word is seeking a jury trial and damages for unpaid wages, fees, premiums, and residuals, plus pension contributions.

Likely because she insists on getting paid for mentioning her “favorites.” Transactional are best. She probably doesn’t want anyone jacking her style, like Kim, always crying about being the “only one” but stillll not fair to the creatives... smh. He’s right‼️ I absolutely dislike this family but this is ridiculous. If she paid for something she doesn’t need to tag anyone
