I am now charging double my fee for "virus pay". I am serious. The schedulers are working from home so they cannot expect me to work for the same fee as before. I am getting double most of the time. Actually I am working slightly less and making much more money.
Here's how I am working now.
1. Double fee for all signings no exceptions PLUS
2. Weekend pay (Sat - Sun) extra $50 to $100
3. Last minute (same day schedule) fee is extra $50 to $100
4. Fax back extra pay $35-$50 with full scan backs $100 extra
So far it is working. At first, I am told hey cannot afford to pay my fees but they will call back if my fees are approved. I tell them I understand. 80% of the time they call me back and have my fees approved. I am not going to put myself at risk for the same pay.
