Yeah okay, blame America when Polish and Estonian models try to get that extra million... I'm sure they just lost all their morals when they got here or something.

Anyway, I'm with them. Next is a large *business* that will pay attention to a financial loss more than anything else, so hit 'em where it hurts! That money is essentially a fine, not to mention a warning for the future of what can happen if they keep trying to screw over their models' finances. Hopefully Next will be more careful now but who knows. I just wish we could know what they settled for

unfortunatelly agencies are the biggest enemies, they treat models like slaves and take much more than the usual comission that they have to get according the contract...I modelled a bit and i know many models who model Internationally, so i heard true stories...agencies only try to ripp you off, they make up so many expencies which are very cheap or cost nothing, but agencies claim lots of money for those "favors" which is actually a part of their job...and 20% comission is very very low...most agencies take 40 or 50%(and the mother agency takes 10% if the model works in another country) and the agencies in Paris take 70%, which is absurd!!!! I call this a theft! And models can never know what the real paychek amount from the client agencies can tell you that you work for 1000$, but it might be a different story. I am sure there are other cases we will never hear about among the big models.

Has it reached court/a settlement yet?
