Talking about Iger she said, “I think he’s completely out of touch. He’s completely out of touch with the workers who make his shows happen, who make people watch these shows, who bring viewers to him and him money,”

“Having worked on a Disney show, I know where people fall through the cracks and where people are taken advantage of and it’s outrageous the amount of wealth that is not shared with the people who actually make the show. That’s crew, cast, writers,” she continued.

What is the SAG-AFTRA Strike all about?

For the first time in 63 years, Hollywood has seen an industry shutdown as both Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild go on strike at the same time. Since May 2, Writers from the industry have been on the picket line whereas Actors Guide announced their involvement in the strike on July 13 at midnight. This entire protest only aims at increasing the pay rates of all the writers and authors in the industry. The SAG-AFTRA is demanding third-party involvement to measure the success of a show as well as its earning. Many entertainment companies denied this idea which has prolonged the strike hampering the release of different films.
