Hollywood assistants in the movie and TV industries have started a movement called #PayUpHollywood to demand better wages and working conditions. Assistants in everything from writers’ rooms to wardrobe departments began sharing stories on Twitter about how they’re underpaid and undervalued in their high-stress jobs.

Some showrunners and execs have voiced their support for #PayUpHollywood and the assistants. Marc Guggenheim, former showrunner of “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” says he’s advocated for higher support-staff wages and lets his assistants try penning a script for the series they’re working on.

Variety’s senior TV writer Elaine Low and news anchor Audrey Yap discuss the recent movement and the effects it’s had in the industry in the Daily Variety analysis.
