ABC’s “Station 19” Star Boris Kodjoe is currently enjoying his summer while always finding time to join the current SAG strike!
The Star took to social media to share:
“On the picket line with my TV family in front of the coffee truck donated by our incredible fans. Thank you all. We love you guys. ❤️
Just to clarify; this is not a matter of spoiled celebs demanding more riches. Most SAG members earn just under $40K per year and 85% of us don’t even make the required $26K per year to qualify for health insurance. The Tom’s, Chris’ and Jennifer’s you know from your favorite blockbusters and magazine covers make up less than half a percent of our union.
This fight is about getting a fair share from streaming revenues and film/TV content sales in order to be able to earn a livable wage with health insurance for our kids. It’s about receiving basic protection from AI innovation that could potentially threaten our very livelihoods.
And let’s not forget the devastating impact the strike has had on all the hundreds of thousands of other workers who help us bring your favorite movies and TV shows to the screen. Catering, electricians, wardrobe, hair & makeup, craft service, lighting technicians, props department, camera crew, transportation, carpenters, painters, office staff, health & safety etc.
I have been a member of SAG for 25 years and I’m proud to be out here with my SAG & WGA brothers and sisters walking and shouting for what’s right.
Auf gehts! ❤️🙏🏾✊🏾”
We love that the cast is out protesting!
