It would basically work like this: all actors and actress salaries would be equalized with slight differences to be allowed on the basis of seniority and merit pay. Anything earned beyond the agreed formula would be taxed at 100% to subsidize those who worked at less than the Screen Actors Guild average (less small exceptions for seniority and merit pay for box office hits).
Since there are hundreds of people in the entertainment industry living six to an apartment and waiting tables or tending bar for every big name raking in millions, it would be democratic as well.
What do you suppose Damon and his fellow entertainment stars would say about instituting such a pilot system in their industry to see how it would work before imposing it on the rest of the country?
How about no star can make more than 20x what an extra makes? Wasn’t that a lib argument vs. CEO’s? They should not make ‘ridiculous’ salaries vs their companies’ lowest paid employees?
