at . Comments

The economy is affecting more than just the automobile workers.

According to All My Children creator Agnes Nixon, everyone involved with that ABC soap opera has been forced to take a pay cut.

"All the actors on All My Children have been reduced [in salary]," said Nixon, who also created One Life to Live and is a paid consultant to the network's daytime division. "Susan Lucci, Michael Knight and Ray McDonald have all been reduced -- substantially. And so have I, as a consultant. The ratings are not the same."
