Big Bang Theory cast members paid one million dollars per episode? Gasp!
Some people are outraged at this pay rise and feel the cast members are "greedy." Well, that's the reality of the marketplace. If we give our audience/customers what they want, they will reward us handsomely, whether this is the boss or the bill payer. The customer decides what "value" is, and it isn't always what we think it is or should be. Tough!
So, though I'm not exactly a fan of this show (my children are, that's how I know it exists!) I don't think the cast members are greedy. They simply know what they are worth to their fans and their bosses and made sure they got it!
Not every cast member who pushed for the million dollar raise got it though. Clearly, some are more valuable than others.
How can you become "more valuable than others" and sell yourself accordingly?
We may not be gunning for a million dollars. It could be a promotion, time off work, perks that go with our jobs or some kind of concession. The key is to become so valuable that we increase our bargaining power. And so good at negotiating that we get what we ask for!
