Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has sent a message of support to the picketing writers in NY and LA.
The Democrat released the following statement on Monday:
"I stand with the writers. The Guild's demand is a test of whether media corporations are going to give writers a fair share of the wealth their work creates or continue concentrating profits in the hands of their executives. I urge the producers to work with the writers so that everyone can get back to work."
Hopefully this strike will end soon, but the writers guild and producers guild aren't even talking anymore!
It would be a real shame if some ordinary folks working on shows lost their jobs if this walkout drags on.
