Singers and bands are expressing their disappointment at a planned change by Spotify on how it pays them.

The company is proposing only to pay those who songs are streamed more than 1,000 times.

No payment will be made to those with fewer streams.

Not Enough

Andrew Hendy from the Mary Wallopers says streaming earnings aren't enough to live on.

But Andrew says the band is touring "night. noon and morning, for probably less than minimum wage."
