And this is why I argued in the Drake thread that I can't feel bad for any of this people when they are being asked to take a cut.  Some have gotten so greedy.  These numbers are obscene.

It also says to me that TPTB should take pay cuts as well if the actors and actresses must.

Drake, Dee, Alfonso, and Reckell are probably making 10,000 per episode since they have been there for 20+ years.

So a paycut would be 2500 bucks.

I guess now we know how much of a paycut Evans and Nichols took now.

I still say the key to keeping the soaps alive is to balance out the stories so that every actor is used for their guarantees.

Exactly and now it makes the action of taking a pay cut seem less heroic. This also makes me wonder why a vet would ever refuse a pay cut. I mean, you lose money but it's better then not having a job. They would still be making alot of money and they are not going to get the kind of money they want elsewhere in the business unless they switch to primetime and movies.

I wish we could somehow get our hands on the contract and salary info for the Days cast. That would be interesting as it has been a major source of discussion lately.

I agree a well-balanced cast helps but I think alot depends on how much certain people make and so on.
