Amy Schumer Demanded Netflix Pay Her The Same As Other Male Comedians
Hollywood is rife with women being paid unfairly. Whether it’s Jennifer Lawrence, Selma Hayek or Meryl Streep, the story is always the same - male co-workers get offered millions more in pay despite the very similar role. Even when the sum is in the millions, there’s no reason women should be valued less for exactly the same work.
Well, we can now add Amy Schumer to the list of women who are (outrageous) asking for fair pay. According to a Variety article, Schumer originally agreed on a fee of $11 million for her Netflix stand-up show. However, after hearing that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle had asked for $20 million per stand-up special, she returned to the company and demanded a renegotiation of her contract.
Although we don’t know whether Schumer managed to completely equalise, we salute her for standing up for what’s right. Along with women not being paid equally (and it gets worse when it comes to women of colour), they are less likely to ask for pay rises than men. So - take note gals - you deserve that pay rise so go get it.
