More Perfect Union explains 'Why Actors Are Shutting Down Hollywood'

For today's Sunday entertainment feature, I'm featuring SAG-AFTRA, who have authorized a strike. Watch More Perfect Union explaining Why Actors Are Shutting Down Hollywood.

Hollywood actors could join writers on strike on July 1 and shut down the TV and film industry.

Streaming has broken the industry. Successful actors are working second jobs. Some received $0 in residuals from Netflix shows with millions of viewers. And many have no health insurance.

That’s why 98% of union SAG-AFTRA actors have voted to authorize a strike.
Here's to SAG-AFTRA, the WGA, and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) reaching agreements that all of them can live with. Otherwise, there will be two strikes in Hollywood next month. As I wrote in Vox explains 'How streaming caused the TV writers strike', "We viewers should care more about the people who create what we watch...We don't want the executives to accidentally kill the geese that lay the golden eggs."
