Default Re: Screen Writers Guild Strike?

Even if a writer is making 200k to write a show, that writer may not have a job for a few years after the show ends. Most shows only last a few seasons. If you expand these salaries over a life time, it does not amount to much.

Well at first I was 100% behind them. I love to write and would give anything to do it for a living. I respect writers a lot. But now that I see how much they can make I'm starting to think hmmm. I mean $500,000 for Leno's show? It isn't even any good! In fact, it's pretty bad. Wonder what a writer for Everyone Loves Raymond made a year? Anyway, I do see your point about the fact that a show may go off the air in 2 years but still.
