44% of our members reported issues getting paid in the previous year. On average our members are owed over $10,000 in unpaid invoices and spend 36 hours tracking down each missing payment. A week of full-time work lost to bill collection!
These stats suggest that chasing down payment has become common practice for freelancers, and this is completely unacceptable. We’re looking into this issue, and we want to hear from you.
Are you an independent worker in entertainment, film, television, journalism, or media?
Based on our member data, freelancers working in these industries tend to experience non-paying clients more than others.
As we begin to use the power of our group to take steps towards addressing client nonpayment, we need to hear about your experiences.
All freelancers deserve to be paid for their work, and we appreciate your help in making sure that happens.
