Sometimes in a democracy, representatives are elected to vote their conscience, not what constituants say...

The majority may not know what it the right thing to do. That's why we elect leadership.

The next time someone tells you what the "majority" want, remember that if majority rules Background Talent would be working for box lunches and the joy of being on the set.

Two merger ballots with the Screen Extras Guild failed, and the SAG board had to take the responsability in a tight vote to take over jurisdiction for background talent, or there would be no union pay and protections for those who work as background artists.
