Let's talk about SAG protesting outside of BBH. From what I gather, BBH declared itself non-signatory and the Guild flipped out. I happen to agree with BBH on this one. SAG is way behind the times.

SAG is like the production mafia! They’ll find you and make you pay!

Bröther, we should stop looking at others and start looking within. Where’s our creative union that ensures our overtime is paid for?

More agencies should follow BBH's lead. A boycott can work both ways. If you want your actors to work, then you need to be a little more reasonable about your rates, fees, and structure.

Maybe, but corporations still making tons of $. Just don’t want to pay actors or creative people for their work anymore. BBH caught in the middle but I don’t blame actors.

SAG should picket clients. Picketing agencies is like actors going after writers rooms in Hollywood

That’s it. Belittle the unions that represent talent because you don’t have a union. Always amazing to me how people react to unions flexing their muscles before we, the unrepresented, go back to our at-will employment to complain about how we haven’t gotten a raise in three years

We are stuck in the mafia too. Our mid size agency is planning the jump this year too after calculated attempts last year. I want to know... how did BBH (or anyone else get out)??

I’m sag and I support sag. You need us to shill your garbage. Pay us.

I sympathize with the actors. However, the SAG contract is not up to speed with the current advertising climate. Many clients want down and dirty productions with small budgets (usually for social or internet) and it means paying less for production, edit and talent. In general, I don’t think Agencies are trying to avoid paying fair wages for large TV productions. The new low budget waiver helps, but the $50k threshold is still often difficult to meet. BBH is trying to compete with other non-SAG agencies who have flexibility to work on small and large productions. I applaud them for making the move to leave the union.
