SAG kills Voice Acting Guild Contract

I guess a 35% raise over three years just doesn't go as far as it used to. That's one of the rationales behind the Screen Actors Guild (not to be confused with the Film Actors Guild from Team America as they have killed the contract that was signed last week. The folks over at the SAG apparently want a bigger chunk of the gaming industry and see the deal as a "slap in the face" for the voice actors in the industry. Someone should explain to the SAG (in small words so they'll understand it) that their voice work is NOT a key part of the game and that they should take what they got and be happy with it. Maybe they can also look at the NHLPA tried to pull of this year and see what that got them.
