Fashion Police Writers Picket & Rally: 'Give Us Our Paycheck, Bitch!'

If you were planning on hitting up the Fashion Police writers rally, you’re too late!

The rally took place today outside of E!’s headquarters, and the picketers wrapped up around 12:30 this afternoon (as planned).

In the morning, strikers took up the HIGHlarious chant of:

“We’re still poor, you’re still rich, give us back our paycheck bitch!”

LOLz!! Clever and appropriate! Definitely got the point accross.

There were around 150 picketers at the peak of the rally. Bryan Cook, one of the writers involved, addressed the crowd along with anyone who cared to listen.

Here’s a glimpse of what he covered:

“We’ve worked hard to make Fashion Police one of E!’s top-rated shows, and we don’t even get health care benefits…It can be hard to get how hard this work is. Its not like were working in a coal mine — you can’t get black lung from writing jokes, but rest assured, E! will try to find a way.”

Sounds terrible!! You’d think E! would try to reward these hard workers as much as possible, not cheat them out of benefits! They’re the voices behind what makes the show the AH-mazing program it is was!

Fellow writer Ed Rice commented on next steps, saying:

“I don’t know what’s specifically next on our part. To a certain extent, its a stand-off — the balls really in their court. What we want is a phone call from the network to our representative at the guild saying they accept them as representation and would like to offer us a guild contract. That’s the only next step from the network we will accept.”

Your move, E!

After all this negative publicity, it would be a huge karmic error for E! to do anything but oblige!!

    it is not only there they don't have health benefits, that's happened everywhere in this country! it's so sad to think the people lost all their benefits in this country. no more vacation. no more pension plan. the only choice left is to work non stop just like a shark swims non stop in order not to die….

    Why do you put a photo of Joan Rivers to go with this story when you know that she fully supports the demands of the writers?

    I would be really curious as to how much these writers are now being paid, I bet it is double/triple what most of us are making
    The BS about health insurance is a moot point, now we all have OBAMACARE
    The unions have killed off a lot of Hollywood ,people wont make movies where they are forced to pay union labor to sit on their ass most of the day
    I think one reason Gatsby got bad reviews, was because the made it in Austraila, for about half of what it would have cost to make it here

    Re: free – No, Joan does NOT support the writers. If she did, this strike would be OVER!

    I'm thinking that just maybe the writers bit off their noses to spite their faces. I watched the show last week and it was damn funny. So that being said someone is still keeping the show entertaining and funny the same as it was when the writers who are on strike wrote the show. Sad but true. E will probably win this one hand's down.

    Maybe they should give the Kardashians a pay cut, so they can give these workers the benefits they deserve….

    Re: Alexima – Why, because Pete wants to know some facts, like what they're actually making? I'd like to know that too. You keep on sharpening that stupid two party paradigm sword and injecting it randomly into conversations, though.
