The actor - who played Mike Baldwin - told The Sun that none of the soap's actors should risk asking for a pay rise in the next few months.
"They'll get rid of anyone who asks!" he claimed.
"You can't predict who will go - it could be anyone," he added. "They seem to get rid of people right left and centre."
Speaking at the launch of the new Corrie! stage play, Briggs claimed that the show needs to "listen to the fans".
He continued: "Give them a bit of what they want, but leave them wanting a bit more.
"But sadly TV doesn't work like that. Producers give fans what they want them to have, so I don't know if everyone will be happy at Christmas."
He added: "When I worked there you got paid per episode so older cast members on more money might get used less!"
Producer Phil Collinson recently admitted that there would be "surprise exits" from the Weatherfield soap later this year.
