But ill for who, when it will start REALLY blowing and how long it will blow, is anybody's guess.
Nobody wants a strike.
But everybody wants a union they believe will fight for all them.
In the Writer's Guild, I am a writer. In 839, I'm a "story person." In one guild, I get residuals, ownership, protection...
...and in the other, I get what I negotiate for. That being said, I am compensated well, and have no complaints. I have a generous employer that respects what I do and pays accordingly.
But the job I do that's covered in 839, is the exact same job I do for the WGA. And quite frankly, I find that baffling.
So on November 2nd, or December, or whatever it is... whenever the strike happens, if it happens...
...every animation writer - storyboard or script - should take a peek and see what the WGA is doing, and whether they accomplish their goals or not.
It affects all of us.
