Worker Know-How

Another part of the PopWork USA mission is to connect writers, artists, directors, musicians, and others in arts and entertainment with the stories, struggles, faces, and spirit of workers, workplaces, and the latest on working family issues.

Some examples:

“I’m doing a film based on a character who is an immigrant living in the US who ironically gets a job at an auto factory whose owner is now from his native country. What would that feel like? Can you find someone with a relatable situation?”


“What is the critical difference between single-payer healthcare vs the healthcare reform package adopted in 2010? What kind of person would benefit from it more? I have a situation for a TV hospital drama that I’m trying to get right.”
