The writers strike and The Office

So yet another reason why I love Steve Carell and The Office, Carell is refusing to cross the picket line for the writers union strike, hence production on the show has been halted. Here is a great video that makes their points about why the writers union deserves to get paid and also shows several of the writers/actors from The Office striking.

And just for shits and giggles, Jon Stewart on the Writers Strike.

My husband is working without a contract at his job. It is very scary. The owner of the business wants to break the union and has already squandered so much money on lawyers to try to do so.

It is horrible. Is money on the table? No-2% raises. Heathcare? No- theirs sucks but they all live with that.

On the table- seniority. My husband has been there 28 years and makes less than $50K a year. They want to fire him and pay two part time college students $15k a piece to do it, no benefits.

The owner is a billionaire and on the Forbes list.

So sad. Go writers I say!!
