They are not...GH is the leading contender in that regard! And I know I am about to sound cynical, but someone asked why they kept Melanie and such.....newcomers do NOT get paid as much as the vets do....they work cheap and they can keep them b/c they KNOW they are not getting much money. Do I think they will not be fired soon? I think they will get pink slipped but right away? I don't think so. Heavy hitters MAY come first before starting to get rid of the riff-raff ie Melanie.
You are very right.

With Days budget cuts that have gone on for so many years, some vets or big ones always go first.

In 2003, it was James Reynolds and Matthew Ashford. Now after that, Alexis Thorpe was cut who had only been on the show for about a year and a half, but then some more vets came afterwards(Josh Taylor, Thaao Penghlis).

In 2006, I don't remember too clearly but I think Matthew Ashford again was one of the ones to go, but I don't know if that was due to budget cuts or just to give J&J their happy ending.
