Work for these four Hollywood production assistants was quite literally a shit show. The workers are suing the movie studios they previously worked for because of their deplorable working conditions including, but not limited to, being "forced" to poop and pee in their cars during work.
According to the The Wrap, which got documents of the suit, four parking production assistants claim Paramount, Nickelodeon Movies, Regency Films, and other production companies, didn't allow them to go on bathroom breaks during the filming of movies like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Wolf of Wall Street.
The court documents read, "Due to limitations on their ability to leave their assigned locations, many of the Plaintiffs are forced to urinate and defecate into bottles and buckets in their vehicles." The PPAs also claim the production companies didn't pay them for their hours worked overtime or for the cost of gas after allegedly keeping their cars on just to keep warm. The production companies made PPAs work 60 to 100 hours a week but only paid them (on average) $150 per day for 12-hour days. PPAs also weren't compensated for food and they weren't given food on set. The PPAs are suing for the money they believe is owed to them and benefits.
Now that's the literal definition of a shitty job.
