Working people in Los Angeles are calling for Picrow, the production company behind the Amazon show “Transparent,” to treat musicians fairly. Members of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) Local 47 leafleted outside the show’s Pearblossom, California, desert location shoot, asking, “Where’s the pride for musicians.” The musicians want Picrow to treat them the same as it treats the other working people on the show. The actors, writers, directors and crew receive union wages, benefits and protections, but musicians are not covered by a labor contract.
