Well, yeah, laid off and employed would be a substantial difference in ...


income ;-)

What about Actor's Equity? In that union, you don't get hired unless the employer wants your skills, the employment is a temporary contract, the union dictates a minimum wage but you can negotiate as much more as the market will bear, and the union provides health care and rules protecting you from overwork and loss of your personal trademark.

You can't even get into that union until you have demonstrated a certain level of mastery of your craft, so the union controls the good talent, which is why the best theaters use pretty much only union talent. Every non-union actor pretty much aspires to be in Actor's Equity.
