Hollywood actors join WGA in historic double strike. 'This is all of our fight'

July 16, 2023

As temperatures rose throughout the morning in Los Angeles, so did the number of picketers from SAG-AFTRA, the actors' union. While the union's starry A-listers often grab the spotlight, Roden emphasized that the majority of her fellow SAG-AFTRA members are just trying to make a living wage. (Myung J.

The labor action marks the first time actors have gone on strike against the film and television studios in 43 years. Like writers, actors have seen their pay decrease because of shrinking residuals, shorter TV seasons and longer hiatuses.
