WGA on Strike

The WGA homepage now says they are on strike. They say they've made further offers to producers today, to no avail. The producers say, on the AMPTP homepage, that they think it is unfortunate that they [the writers] choose to take this irresponsible action [of striking]. Remember, actors can picket in their spare time, and still must go to work; caveat actor.

In other news, I'm planning to join SAG this week! Any thoughts?

comments: My recommendation: Don't join SAG, or even AFTRA, until the strike's called off. This is because there is a trend that if WGA goes on strike, then so does SAG and AFTRA. And if you join any union then remember the Global Rule No. 1: No member shall work as a performer or make an agreement to work as a performer for any producer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the Guild which is in full force and effect.

It means that you can't do any non-union work! It means that you're stuck without work until the strike is over.
