What does “Plus Ten” Mean?

0

The standard process when agents collect their commission is to take that 10% directly from their client’s gross pay. So if my salary for acting in a film was $2,000, I would pay my agent $200 which would leave me with $1,800 in my bank account. If someone offers me scale plus ten, this means that they will pay me scale rate and they would also pay my agent his/her 10% commission on top of that. This way, I get to keep all my money and my agent still gets paid. In the former scenario, I would have $2000 in my bank account and the production company or studio would pay my agent $200 separately. This is a common negotiation tactic that agents use to get their clients more money.
