strike news --- and if you are in 5150 and do not read this you are so fired
On the writers’ strike.
It could be sort of break through news too.
Just out of curiosity, how many people actually give a damn? You know with my aspiring writers I had to get kind of violent to even get a reaction?
But anyway —
This is info from a letter I received December 28, 2007 from the WGA.
The WGA has reached a contract with David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants production company [*max note : the only company that said it would and then did pay employees throughout the duration of the strike as it applied to them — to the best of my knowledge and if anyone else did that email me] that puts his show and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson back on the air with Guild writers.
There is a lot more but I am cutting that. What matters is David Letterman’s company walked away from the AMPTP and signed a deal. [It is a very fair deal too. Which is probably why David Letterman who is a very smart man thought it looked just fine and signed it.] And. Any other company may do that. The only difference being, some companies would rather be punkass, put their employees out on the street and fight for the sake of fighting than pay their writers.
Gee. I wonder who those punkasses are?
