No - sorry. It's not like being a real actor, where they take a percentage of your pay. Extra are paid very little - usually no more than your expenses to cover travel to and from the location or studio, and a meal at a take-away afterwards, so a 15% or 20% deduction from that really isn't worth bothering with. So to make a living - and they are in business to do that - all extras agencies charge a monthly or annual fee - and even then, you're very unlikely to ever get called more than once or twice a year for very minor productions. You may not get called at all. And in case you were wondering, being an extra isn't considered real acting - it won't help you get into acting in any way, you can't add it to a CV, and it doesn't count as experience.

Extra work can be useful because you can see what it's like on set, however that's pretty much it. You can't put extra work on a resume, so it's not going to get you very far. You don't actually act very much, so it's not like your going to be "discovered". Not to mention it doesn't pay much. There's re very few websites that won't make you pay for some type of membership. Considering you're unemployed it might be best to just avoid extra work all together. Sorry :(
