'Jersey Shore' Stars Get Pay Raise, End StrikeAfter a reported strike over payment issues, the cast of 'Jersey Shore' has ironed out contractual issues and will fist-pump their way into production on season 3 this week.

"MTV is pleased that the 'Jersey Shore' cast are returning to Seaside Heights," the network wrote in a statement. "Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them."

Most reports hint that the cast will earn $30,000 per episode. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino led the strike-ending charge by signing for what TMZ reports as "anywhere between $27,500 to $45,000 per episode." Not too shabby, considering their per-episode pay was $10,000 for season 2 and just $5,000 for the first season.
