Kids Getting Shafted by Disney and Nickelodeon

Disney and Nickelodeon are pretty much notorious for shortchanging their actors. But looking at the numbers when held up against the amount that Angus T. Jones, the young star of Three and a Half Men, is getting paid, this is almost criminal! Read here:

I know some people will complain that these kids get paid such ridiculous amounts, but hey, it is what it is.

I was just reading yesterday about how the voice of Dora the Explorer was getting paid only $1,500 per episode, and was NOT compensated for the hundreds of thousands of hours it took to correct. Read here:

Mind you, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how much money the Dora the Explorer franchise has made over the years. To think how much Nickelodeon has cheated this actor is really nothing short of criminal.

Really, Miley Cyrus getting paid that little for Hannah Montana? Makes no sense! And Miranda Cosgrove getting paid more than Selena Gomez or the Sprouse Twins? Highway robbery! What I really think happened is that Disney and Nickelodeon have made a business of getting over on children eager to be in show business and parents who are just as frantic that they're willing to sign any contract that comes along lest they miss their golden opportunity. Either way, it's dishonorable that these companies are doing.
