Screen Actors Guild - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (990 words)
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) is the labor union representing film actors in the United States.
In 1925, the Masquers club was formed by actors fed up with the grueling work hours at the Hollywood studios, particularly for actors without contracts, who felt the brunt of cost-cutting measures during the Great Depression.
This was one major concern which led to the creation of the Screen Actors Guild in 1933.
