We thought Netflix would have known better!
Despite what Stacey Dash says, there is a gender pay gap in America, and that truth can easily be seen when it comes to the salaries over on everyone’s favorite streaming site’s latest hit, Grace and Frankie.
Why are the lead actors getting paid the same as the supporting actors, you might ask??
That’s the problem — they should very clearly be making more money since they’re putting in more work.
At a press release ahead of the season’s premiere on Friday, Jane spoke very frankly to reporters, saying:
“Lily found out Sam and Martin are getting the same salary that we are… That doesn’t make us happy.”
We’re glad they’re speaking out!
It just goes to show that even legends in the industry can still experience the inequality of 78% pay.
But that’s not all — Lily backed Jane’s initial comments, saying:
“The show is not ‘Sol and Robert‘ — it’s ‘Grace and Frankie‘!”
You go, girls!
Hopefully Netflix learns from its mistake, and gets it right for their next series.
