When you were 13, you probably had an allowance that allowed you a little time at the arcade on Saturdays.

So you'll no doubt little hard done by after hearing the news that the cast of Stranger Things are on considerably more than you were at their age.

It's been revealed that the young stars of the Netflix showFinn Wolfhard (14), Millie Bobby Brown (13), Gaten Matarazzo (15), Noah Schnapp (13) and Caleb McLaughlin (16)are earning $30,000 (P1,545,750) each per episode according to The Hollywood Reporter.

And that's not it. Apparently the gang were also given a "a less than six figure bonus" (whatever that means) once Netflix realized what a hit the show had become.

The cast are already signed up to appear on the show for six years, so they are going to be even more insanely rich once the show comes to an end. And as it becomes more and more popular, they're likely to renegotiate their contracts too. In other words, they'll be asking for more money.

And a source made a good point to The Hollywood Reporter. They said: "If the series has any luck at the Emmys, that will only intensify."
