Surging Approval: Hollywood’s Striking Actors and Writers Garner Unprecedented Support, Reveals Poll

Published on

“Overwhelming Majority of Americans Show Solidarity with Striking Hollywood Writers and Actors”

Point 1:
– A recent Gallup poll reveals that 72% of Americans support TV and film writers who are on strike for better pay and working conditions.
– Additionally, the data shows that 67% of Americans stand in solidarity with TV and film actors who are also on strike.

Elaboration:
The Gallup’s annual Work and Education poll, conducted this month, clearly indicates the overwhelming support of the American public for Hollywood writers and actors who are demanding improved pay and working conditions. Released on the 121st day of the Writer’s Guild Strike, these results highlight the empathy of entertainment consumers towards those on strike, who are ready to continue their strike until 2024. Despite efforts from studio heads and representatives for WGA and SAG-AFTRA, no common ground has been found thus far.

Point 2:
– The strike’s impact extends to the fate of the 2023-2024 television season as well as several movie projects.
– Hollywood writers are seeking concessions such as increased pay and job security, with over 11,000 writers joining the first Hollywood strike in 15 years due to the ripple effects of the streaming industry.

Elaboration:
The ongoing strike not only affects the television industry but also jeopardizes several movie projects. Hollywood writers are demanding concessions that address their concerns regarding pay and job security. The rise in streaming services has significantly impacted how writers are compensated, as streamed TV shows often have fewer episodes than broadcast TV series. This translates to smaller paychecks for writers. Furthermore, longer breaks between seasons in streaming shows can leave writers unemployed until a new season is approved or filming resumes. The issue of fewer residuals, which are payments made to writers and actors after a show airs, also contributes to their dissatisfaction. The Writers Guild of America (WGA) released a statement in March expressing that writers are underpaid, have reduced hours, and lack basic protections provided by a minimum bargaining agreement. The WGA highlighted that while series budgets have increased over the past decade, median writer-producer pay has actually decreased.
