Quote of the Day - The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.
Presumably, that's what Jorja Fox and George Eads did when they went to the producers of CSI. I know, I don't normally write entertainment news, but I'm a big CSI fan, and the story is over contract disputes.
According to news reports, they've been fired for asking for more money.
"How could that be?" you ask. After all, you've probably done the same thing. Well, it's Hollywood. Need I say more?
Technically, it likely works something like this. They're in their fifth year of a seven-year contract. They ask for more pay. It's likely those demands were each a breach of contract. Kind of like a counteroffer to an existing contract, which the employer had no obligation to accept. But more likely, there was a provision in the contracts that prevented increased demands. The "greed provision," as more commonly known.
In other words, take your demand and shove it.
