Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wallstreet' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies.
The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks.
On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it. And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularily while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days.
The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.
