#16: It’s Time to Rewrite the Script
The irony in the show Orange is the New Black is hard to ignore. It’s a series centered around women’s experiences in a prison setting, highlighting their struggles and resilience. However, behind the scenes, some actresses portraying these empowered characters faced their own battles with financial exploitation. Kimiko Glenn, known for her role on the show, candidly revealed how she couldn’t afford cabs to set.
She also said some of the cast needed a second job due to the low salary. Her revelations highlight the issues writers and actors fight for in the ongoing Hollywood strike, standing up for fair pay and working conditions. It’s time to rewrite the script and ensure everyone receives well-deserved conditions in this industry.
