Hollywood actors guild to seek strike

Could the timing be any more obnoxious? Everyone else is facing salary cut backs, layoffs, shrinking benefits and these prima-donna's are bucking to expand already inflated salary's, what unmitigated hubris.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Screen Actors Guild said Saturday it will ask its members to authorize a strike after its first contract talks in four months with Hollywood studios failed despite the help of a federal mediator.

The guild said it adjourned talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers shortly before 1 a.m. after two marathon sessions with federal mediator Juan Carlos Gonzalez.

SAG, representing more than 120,000 actors in movies, television and other media, said in a statement that it will launch a "full-scale education campaign in support of a strike authorization."
