What is Scale?

Scale is a pay rate that is set by the Unions such as SAG-AFTRA. It depends on the job and usage etc. but there are rate cards that clearly lay out what one should earn if you are in the Union and working a Union job. This is a way to protect the Union members from being ripped off for jobs that could be worth more money.
