This strike has already proven the writers' worth. Is it not abundantly clear
that everything in the industry is shutting down without them?! Not to mention
the effect this is going to have on other industries. The writers are obviously
indespensible, and people really need to stop complaining about the fact that
they simply want to get paid what they deserve--a percentage proportional to
their worth--for the work they do.Either you like TV and therefore
must appreciate the talent it took to put those stories together, or you don't.
If so, you can't argue that the writers don't deserve what they're asking for.
If not, you have no reason to care.The only people who really
deserve no sympathy in this situation are the greedy networks. Sure, Steve
Carell is rich. But the guy who signs Steve Carell's paychecks, whose only role
is to make money off the talent of others? No comparison.Plus, the
average staff writer is not Steve Carell. The average writer probably makes
about as much as you do. And you can't tell me you've never felt like you
deserve more than you were getting paid. Kudos to them for doing something
Union Dinosaurs it is apparent that you have never been unfairly treated at
work. If you had you would have found yourself alone against several corporate
lawyers and soon found out you were powerless. You can not sue in Utah because
it is a right to work state. Companies can do anything they want to you and get
away with it. The only chance you might have is if you have an association or
union help you. Other than that your right. You must like the idea you can be
fired at any time for any reason.
Once upon a time organized labor saved lives, created stability, and improved
the quality of life for average Americans. Unions, like buggy whips largely
ceased to be beneficial, or even necessary 75 years ago.Today,
organized labor is responsible for reducing the competitive advantage of
American Products and Services. It plays a major roll is stifling competition,
entrepreeneurship, and retards the need for individual excellence. While trade
unions do provide quality technical training, The long-term cost of individual
union membership is no bargin in comparison to other avenues of skills
development. Lastly, the organized labor environment fosters corruption and
graft.With the notable exception of public safety and life saving
occupations, unions today provide little benefit to America, or Americans.
This will accelerate the death of the dinosaur. Nobody from Earth feels sorry
for those smutty T.V. writers. Good riddance.
Finally, no more Ryan/Kelly drama.
