Netflix Helps Workers – level 3

27-03-2020 07:00

Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, said that Netflix created a $100 million fund to help workers on its shows and movies and in the entertainment industry during the coronavirus pandemic.

He said that most of the money will go to Netflix crew members who are without work around the world. These workers are paid by the hour and have jobs like electricians, drivers, and hair and makeup artists.

Several weeks ago, Netflix had to suspend work on shows like ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The Witcher’ because of the virus. The company will also give $15 million to industry groups in other countries where it does a lot of work.

Difficult words: pandemic (when an illness affects people all over the world), crew member (a person who works on a play, a TV show, a movie, or another entertainment activity), suspend (to stop for some time).
