This is Ed Asner 1984:
““Our union is our bill of rights. It sets standards for compensation and hours of work, to counter exploitation. It fights for human rights and creative rights, against the forces of bigotry and censorship.
“It establishes our right to health benefits when we are sick, and pensions when we are old. It provides a redress of grievances when we are abused and gives us a voice that cannot be outshouted by networks or studios.
“It asserts our right to share in the profits gleaned by our labor.
“The union is our way of showing we care about each other, that we believe in more than the survival of the fittest."

May not hit you personally; it affects your coworkers.
These draconian changes affect all performers: day players, stunts, singers, stand-ins, background actors, dancers, recording artists, voice-over artists, broadcasters, and most importantly, the seniors who built our Union.

For #SAGAFTRA Members over 65 taking their pensions, residuals no longer will count as earnings.
BUT! These same members will have contributions made into the Plan on those earnings. These same members will continue to pay dues and taxes on them.
