I don't think it's a disgrace that actors in daytime get paid less. They don't bring in the kind of revenue that the actors in primetime do when their series are popular.

I mean, "Grey's Anatomy" got big, brought ABC success on Thursdays- the most profitable night- and then spun off a show expanding solid ratings to another evening. The people on that show earn ABC millions, and deserve a nice cut of that, even if they haven't been around as long as cast members of ABC soaps, even if soap actors work harder.

That sucks, but it's how things are. The salaries posted come off as pretty good considering that soaps by and large aren't delivering anymore, imho.
