I completely support the WGA, and I hope that the guild is successful in getting the media moguls to engage in meaningful negotiations soon. What the WGA is asking for is entirely reasonable, and it’s the same thing SAG will be asking for in just a few months, so while this isn’t directly my fight at the moment, it’s going to be, soon enough.
The strike is affecting a lot of people who aren’t WGA or SAG, though: I have several friends who work in various film crew jobs who aren’t able to go to work because of the strike, and they’re starting to feel the impact of the studio’s greed, as well.
This Friday, the some WGA members have put together a benefit concert to raise money to provide assistance to industry workers who are affected by the strike.
