I can guarantee you that Callahan is not working for scale having been the the business for over 20 years.

I don´t think so. First, nobody knows what´s inside his contract. He is not exactly a star and even admitted himself he is happy to even have a job, so he probably has just a standart newbie-like contract with a minimum guarantee and six week cycle.
And the day players are paid more for a shooting day than newbie contract players, it´s even a part of the union rules. Besides this is nothing new. Or I´m the only one who remembers all the "contract players" Sheffer add to the show during the Shelle island story only to be unrecemoniously fired as soon as the story ended? There is really nothing to worry about, it´s just a financial precaution.
Also, a day player does not make more per day that a contract player.
Scale for a principal performer (over 10 lines) is $891 per episode
Scale for a day player (less than 10 lines) is $344 for episode
