What an amazing win for the movement to close the gender wage gap!
On Wednesday, Emmy Rossum took to Twitter to announce she WILL be returning for Shameless for its eighth season. The great news comes on the heels of tense contract negotiations between Emmy and Showtime.
As some outlets reported, Ms. Rossum refused to renew her contract unless she was given MORE money than her costar William H Macy. Apparently the actress had been getting less than Macy for YEARS, even though she's one of the show's leads.
Despite Showtime's offer of equal pay, Emmy's team apparently convinced the network to give her MORE cash to make up for the years of economic disparity.
