Collective bargaining does work.

After holding out for more money, the core cast members of ABC’s hot sitcom, Modern Family, got a substantial raise and will reportedly return to the studio today to begin work on season four.

Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have dropped their suit against 20th Century Fox Television and agreed to terms that will raise their salaries to as much as $175, 000 per episode with bonuses. (They had been earning about $65,000 per episode last season.)

The contract adds an additional eighth year to their deals, by which time, with incremental raises, they are promised $350,000 per epsiode. That is one happy Modern Family.

Does this mean the kids get bigger allowances?
