The changes in the workplace in the 21st century are many. We’re in a gig economy populated by freelancers and technology lets us work from home, automate processes, and create and market the written word, video and music on our own.  So what factor is helping to grow the film industry in Western New York while also managing costs? Good old-fashioned unionized workers. Buffalo Niagara Film Commissioner Tim Clark explains to WBFO’s Pat Feldballe on this week's Press Pass.

Pat is a member of the Buffalo Broadcast Hall of Fame. He hosts WBFO's Weekend Blues Show from 7-11 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
