New York has gotten too expensive for people to take time off from their jobs to hang out in the Equity lounge all day just in case they maybe get called in to audition for a job that might pay minimum wage.

That becomes another way that theater privileges people who come from money, which overwhelmingly means white people.

If this shift allows more actors to become dues paying members of the union who can have a better auditioning experience (including appointment times), then all the better.
