  1. Tulad nga nung mga nakaraang posts ko dito, Gawing uniform ang sweldo ng LAHAT every month! For example mapaartista man o Utility o Extra e gawing 40-60k lahat ang monthly! sa mga Director at Scriptwriter lang ang mas mejo mataas! PARA MAIWASAN NA ITONG MGA DRAMA AT PAIYAK IYAK PA LALO NA NITONG SI AIZA NA MUKHANG PARA SA KABUTIHAN PERO PAG NABASA ITONG SUGGESTION KO E MGA UNANG MAGREREKLAMO AT AANGAL SA KALTAS MG TALENT FEE NILA!!!!

    2. Think before you click. Makes no sense.

    1. Give them a break. Ang totoong yumayaman diyan sa showbiz ay iyong mga bida lang talaga. What you call Big Stars. And not all actors are big stars. It's high time that these other actors and bit players unite and be given what is due to them. I used to remember Mary Walter who was acting for decades, sa sementeryo nakatira. Whitney Tyson dati sa ilalim ng tulay. Kung may welfare benefits sila hindi sana ganon mahihirapan. Hindi kasi sila tinuturing na regular employees kaya wala silang benepisyo.

    2. Ugh!!! “will gonna” IS INCORRECT.

      Please stop using it. The word “gonna” is colloquial for “going to” thus, it is incorrect to state, “I will gonna (going to)...”

      Instead one must state: “I AM gonna (going to)...” or “actors ARE gonna (going to)...”

      Itigil na yung pa-Western influence na mali mali naman. Mag Tagalog na lang para matigil na ang pretentiousness na mas magaling ang ibang lahi o wika.

    3. History will tell you that Pinoys like to take away and inherit foreigners’ bad attitude including language. Take for example crab mentality, sa mga kastila yan minana ng mga Pinoy, tapos yang ganyang lenguahe ng mga walang pinag aralan na mga kano dinadala dito sa atin ng mga Pinoy na mababa rin ang antas ng buhay sa Amerika pero feeling superior pag umuwi dito sa atin. Go figure. Kapag nagsalita ng ganyan alam mo na cheap ang pinaggalingan.

    5. 1:47 that wasn't Mary Walter, it was Moody Diaz. Mary Walter was a major star, leading lady of Fernando Poe Sr.
      Yun mga artista should also know how to save up. Learn also the value of money and not to live up with the Joneses. Magastos din ang mga luho nila.
      As for the other industry workers they should have a union and the producers should recognize them. Ang yumayaman talaga ay ang mga producer. Like the one they call mother. Grabe ang sama magbayad yan. She only pays well the big stars, yun iba post dated cheques. Sobrang tipid sa production expenses. That is why her films are not worth for awards nor good reviews.

  3. This should be taken into consideration. That's why secured lahat ng artists sa Hollywood because of Screen Actors Guild (SAG). Dapat meron din dito niyan sa atin.

    1. Meron yan dati sa panahon nina FPJ, Rudy F. Wala ng pake ngayon.

    2. Ayaw nila ng ganyan for the longest time kasi male legitimize yung trabaho ng maliliit na trabahador sa industriya. Magkakaroon ng benefits medical at retirement ang mga yun. Eh sa paningin ng mga producers tanging mga artista lang ang nagbibigay at nagbabalik ng investments nila, bale wala ang mga pobreng crew. Sad but true.

    3. True 2:18. Mas gusto nila yung magdodole out lang ng tulong kapag nangailangan yung manggagawa. Pero walang structure na magbibigay sa kanila ng assurance kapag mag retire sila.

    4. This is true. Secured sila if member ng SAG. Meron nga silang health insurance under SAG eh.

  4. Dapat meron na kasi union or organization ang showbiz dito sa atin like sa ibang bansa.

    2. Kung sikat na artista ka at maraming endorsement. Pero kung starlet isang malaking misteryo kung bakit yung ibang artista nagkakaruon ng bahay at kotse

    3. Correct,may mga mansion
      Magaganda ang buhay pati ng mga anak nila.Pero sana just like us,magkaroin ng safe environment sa workplace.

    4. And they still want more!!! Using the peasants(extras/utilities) as their concerns!

      Delete
    5. Pinanuod mo ba video? Parang hindi... Ang pinagtatanggol nila mga crew, extra, etc.

      Delete
  7. Wag mag artista from time to memorial yan n talaga ang nature ng work ng mga artista at film industry crew lahat ng work mahirap
