Actress Yvette Nicole Brown Exposes Hollywood Producers and Explains How Actors are Living in Poverty

The ongoing strike of the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and the Writers Guild of America (WGA) has brought Hollywood to a standstill, affecting film and TV productions, award shows, and the livelihoods of thousands of performers and writers. Among the striking actors is Yvette Nicole Brown, best known for her roles in Community, The Mayor, and Avengers: Endgame. Brown has been vocal about the reasons behind the strike and the challenges faced by most actors in the industry.

Yvette Nicole Brown Speaks Out Exposing Hollywood Producers

In an interview at a protest Brown conveyed that the producers want to portray the actors on strike as spoiled millionaires who are asking for too much. She explained the the reality is that 98% of actors in Screen Actors Guild are not working at any given time, 85% don’t even make $26,000 a year to qualify for healthcare, and have to work two or three jobs just to make ends meet.

Brown also said that things are equally bad on the writers’ side, as many of them face issues such as unpaid overtime, lack of residuals, and exclusion from streaming platforms.

Statistics from SAG-AFTRA’s website that show the disparity between the top earners and the majority of actors, supports what Brown is saying. According to the union, only 1% of actors make more than $500,000 per year, while 50% make less than $10,000 per year. The median annual income for actors is $18,895, which is below the federal poverty level for a family of three.

Brown conveyed that the strike is not only about money, but also about respect and dignity for the performers and writers who create the content that drives the entertainment industry. The demands they are fighting for do not seem unreasonable from the outside looking in.

It seems they are simply asking for fair wages, fair residuals, fair pension and health contributions, fair working conditions, fair diversity and inclusion practices, and fair arbitration processes.
