Why The Entertainment Industry Should Pay Its Interns

Why The Entertainment Industry Should Pay Its Interns | Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it
Rather than bringing on a group of interns to work for free as administrative or personal assistants, you could be paying them and actually striving to have their tasks impact your bottom line.
Justin Lerro's insight:

Group pitches tax credits, bigger role for state to lure entertainment industry | Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it
Justin Lerro's insight:

The take breaks wanted in this article from the state of Florida show how lower taxes means better business! Yes it can mean less 

Revenue for the state. But the job of the state government is to help with job growth, which this will do! Directly by the actual jobs like camera operator, stagehand, etc. but also indirectly by the film promoting our states environment they encourage people to spend money here on vacation!
