A company will only pay you what they feel you're worth. If you can't negotiate for better pay, royalties, etc. than you aren't of much value to them, are you? Major actors never have these problems. It's no different from a corporation hiring an exec over a member of the rank and file. Once makes a lot more money, stock options, benefits, etc. and the other is lucky to have a paying job. Learn to cope with it already. If you don't like it, go do something else. The world owes you nothing.
Wow. I have seen you post some ignorant stuff, but this goes well beyond. This is oligarchal cynicism at its worst. Companies more often than not haven't a clue what is of worth unless there is historical data to validate it. They operate almost entirely on market analysis, depending on their size, and committee. As was said by someone else, major actors weren't always major and required a number of contacts, lucky breaks, and yes, a union working for their best interests. The world may "owe you nothing" but I can guarantee you, Cutter, you're only alive because other people thought you were worth their time, energy, knowledge, and support.
