As all of my broadcast school teachers told me, “you don’t make money in radio unless you’re in a major market,” and from what I’ve witnessed, they’re right. With that, some radio hosts decided to do something about it 18 monthes ago, and now they have the record for longest federal sector strike in Canada.
So what are they asking for? A living wage, but so far their employer MBS Radio has only tabled one deal, according to the strikers.
Working in the media can be a tough gig, with little pay, but I hope these guys get the wages they deserve.
