WGA STRIKE -- Why We Fight

I continue to have "civilian" friends ask me "so why are the writers on strike?"

Here ya go:

This is a hugely important issue which affects a uniquely American industry -- "the movies." For now, it can't be easily outsourced to India or Mexico or China, and if we as viewers and fans of good movies and TV want that to remain true, we have to make sure that it's possible for an American writer to make a survivable wage creating product for this industry.
