Actors: Stay Away from South Park
The Screen Actors Guild is a union of actors. Like any other union, it's power lies in its ability to restrict the supply of labor. Working on South Park is a no-no, a "RULE ONE VIOLATION" no-no, because the show doesn't provide "SAG wages, benefits and conditions of employment." What happens to those who commit a Rule One violation?
Members who violate Rule One could be required to appear before a Trial Board conducted by a group of their peers. A Trial Board has the authority to Discipline to impose fines, suspend, or expel a member from the union.
Why does a Soviet show trial come to mind only without the obligatory execution?
This information will only swell the ranks of "South Park" conservatives.
