Fair Pay for Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook

This petition had 271 supporters

Over the course of Criminal Minds' many years on the air, stars Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook, whose salaries were once less than half of those of several of their male costars (source), have fought together multiple times for at least some degree of pay parity. Now they are forced to so again, and may leave the show if unable to achieve the compensation they deserve. The characters of Jennifer Jareau and Penelope Garcia have been on the series from the very first episode, and to lose them would devastate both fans and the show itself. We will stand behind AJ and Kirsten whatever choices they feel they must make, but we also urge the networks negotiating with them to pay them what they deserve and keep their characters where they belong.
