Tennessee is a right to work state. There is some argument that joining SAG-AFTRA would be very bad here. I personally want to join as I can see the many benefits of it. There are MANY unpaid jobs here and some that do pay and aren't student productions are low paying. Granted if it's a great role that I can use on a reel then it may be worth the time. But once I worked on a large film that should have had a better budget and we were told to wait in a pitch black room, no windows, couldn't even see each other. They used a flashlight to usher us in and out, this should never happen on a set. So I'd like to hear your opinions on whether you feel it's better to be union or not, especially in a right to work state.
