OK, yeah, we were super stoked to hear that the Jersey Shore's fourth season was officially ON, but that's nothing compared to how the cast is probably feeling right now.

Correction, how their bank accounts are feeling, which is abundantly full. Entertainment Weekly reported a six-figure raise for the "core" cast upping their per episode salary to a whopping $100,000. That's a huge number compared to last season's, which hovered around $30,000 – much more than some "real" actors on some hit shows. Ouch!

Of course, there are plenty of naysayers who think Snooks and Co. don't deserve such a huge bump in salary, and even though we LOVE them, we're not sure if we should be applauding fist pumping for them or totally appalled. Tell us what YOU think? Are our favorite Jersey Shore-ers deserving of such a bump in salary?
