I mean…. Isn’t that the case for any employee at any job?Equity actors are paid well above minimum wage. The risk is once the show closes they are out of a job.
Plus all kinds of animatronics, staff and more than one show. I don't know how much the actors were paid but I doubt it was minimum wage.
Equity actors and union musicians as well as the techs who work the show are all paid well above minimum wage. But that’s true all over the property.
