>Now it’s the Actors’ turn

>SAG is going to strike–or rather they are highly encouraging their members to vote for one, according to the Associated Press.

AFTRA (the smaller similar union that also covers radio) settled with the studios/major producers.

The sticking points for SAG seem to be relatively similar to the ones brought up during the Writers’ Strike: new media residuals (royalties).

I sympathise with them, but I think it will be a harder sell for SAG to win over public opinion.

    >why is it a harder sell for sag than for the writers? because people think actors already make tons of money?
