Actress Michelle Williams Victimized by Hollywood Wage Discrimination

January 11th, 2018

Actress Michelle Williams Victimized by Hollywood Wage DiscriminationThe Academy Award-nominated actress Michelle Williams earned less than actor Mark Wahlberg for the movie, “All the Money in the World,” which was released in December 2017. Apparently, Wahlberg negotiated for more money for required reshoots after actor Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey. Wahlberg received nearly two million dollars for the reshoots while Williams received under $100 per diem or around $1000 for the additional work she completed in the film. Ironically, the William Morris Endeavor agency represents both Wahlberg and Williams, and failed to inform Williams about Wahlberg’s extra compensation. Director Ridley Scott claimed that the actors returned for the reshoots for free while Sony, the agency, and Wahlberg allegedly pushed for additional payments for the extra work.

Instances of wage discrimination between genders exists in many different industries including the entertainment business. In fact, many actresses have been outspoken about the unfair difference in pay between male and female actors, which the Michelle Williams story demonstrates, and are fighting to secure equal compensation for equal roles. In 1963, the Equal Pay Act stipulated that employers cannot offer a lower income to women for the same job that male employees hold.
