WGA, producers issue joint statement on talks


Joint statement from the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers:

On Wednesday, January 23rd the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers will begin informal discussions to determine if there is a basis for both parties to return to formal negotiations. Both the AMPTP and the WGA have agreed to make no public comments about the informal discussions until those discussions have concluded.

It's about time the WGA returned to the table. The average WGA member gets paid more than a policeman and a fireman COMBINED. They don't rush into burning buildings or fight armed suspects. What makes them think that they have the right to hold up the entire industry that LA is based on so that they can get a few more extra-soy venti lattes?

Los Angeles isn't based solely on "the industry", only a self centered member of that group would think so.
It isn't just the writers holding up negotiations, the producers are doing their part as well, and the writers do have a right to negotiate for fair compensation for their work.
Everybody older than 14 knows that what a person gets paid is in no way directly correlated to said worker's value to society, sports figures, pop stars, hollywood agents......
