In addition to a dwindling number of 'working' screenwriters - a number in the low dozens - the so-called 'union' named Writers Guild of America is made up of thousands of 'reality show' 'writers' of the kind who created Donald J. Trump.
The WGA, as quoted by one famous writer's widow, "They tell lie after lie after lie" - and now they want to shut down an entire industry, where hundreds of thousands rely on continuing filmmaking, to satisfy further pension fund demands and profits from 'new media' which grew from the last strike of 100 days -- when their pension fund is healthy and in the billions. Also they want more profits etc. when many of the writers, like Spielberg and Sorkin, already make hundreds of millions etc.
Screenwriting is an art form, and can make billions in profits for screenwriters.
WGAW is ow
ed and operated by a self-serving self-centered group of producer-writers like John Wells who care nothing for writers or their work, only profits and cash flow.
Google John Wells or his producing partner Aaron Sorkin to discover how screenwriters can make out like bandits.
Thus they don't need to steal from those less fortunate, or put them out of work. Also check out WILLIAM

No writers' strike is ever required against the truth, or the facts, or the future.
