On Wednesday May 1, International Workers’ Day, join FAIR PAY MUSIC at the Union Square rally of the May 1st Coalition, immigrant groups, Occupy Wall Street, and the labor movement. We are gathering at 4pm at the Gandhi statue in the SW corner of Union Square. Look for the HUGE HAT.
More info on the rally: http://bit.ly/YawyJS
Around 5:30pm, we’ll march with thousands to City Hall, alongside the Occupy Guitarmy (http://occupyguitarmy.tumblr.com/), calling for fair pay and respect for all musicians. A tip bucket is NOT a viable source of income: Do you pass the hat for YOUR paycheck?
After the march, join us in Foley Square to participate in the May Day People’s Assembly.

Fair Pay Music is a New York-based campaign with a mission to create, implement, monitor, educate, and agitate for ethical standards and practices that will create better paid, more fulfilling, safer, and more equitable working conditions for musicians at live performance venues. It is a grassroots campaign initiated by the Musicians Solidarity Council, an affinity group of Occupy Wall Street.
Fair Pay Music seeks to work in solidarity with related fair-practice initiatives, and welcomes collaboration with similarly minded institutions, groups, and individuals towards our common goals.
