"Modern Family" Cast Sues for Higher Pay

 

Five cast members of "Modern Family" sued the show´s producer 20th Century Fox Television to void their contracts.

Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell didn´t show up Tuesday for the first readings of the fourth season. They claim their contracts cap the raises they receive for each additional season of the show.

The actors each are paid about $65,000 per episode. Only Ed O´Neill came to work Tuesday as he has a special contract and earns a reported $100,000 per episode.

yes but actors are better than us regular folk and deserve to be paid accordingly, okay? They are obviously grossly underpaid... I mean how can they afford their new mansions or sports cars with a measly 1.3 million a year before taxes?

  Taxes?  
 
Now, you know that only the little people pay taxes. Rich people don´t pay no stinkin´ taxes.
