But Equity is always pay to play, it's just that in the past, it was the privilege of producers, directors, casting directors, and training institutions to determine when an actor had reached a point at which they could now pay to play.

I'm also ambivalent about whether this will be a good solution - the toxicity and dysfunction of our industry is a much bigger knot than Equity can untie by creating more access to opportunities - but I'm willing to wait and see how this plays out, and I'm willing to trust that Shindle et al are doing this for worthwhile reasons rather than economic necessities.
