Now here’s a picket line I’d like to see


LINDA EVANGELIST­A once memorably remarked of her fellow supermodel­s: ‘We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.’

These days, Emily Ratajkowsk­i believes they need to form a trade union to protect their rights.

The London-born model and actress, 31, laments: ‘There’s no union for models, so you have these young women, who are often foreigners and have no family and they have no sense of business or anything. They are totally exploited.’

Ratajkowsk­i, who is estranged from her husband, the film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, adds: ‘I felt like a mess in my 20s. I guess I came off as confident but really a huge part of me was a little bit of a ragdoll.

‘I see that now with girls in their 20s and I’m like, “F***, how do I teach you to advocate for yourself.” ’
