For TV writers, higher employment but stagnant salaries

Hosted by

The Writers Guild of America is negotiating a new 3-year contract with film and TV producers. There are more than 450 series this season, which is twice as many shows than in 2011. There’s also a surge in the number of TV writers, but their wages have been flat. Stress over money is stirring up talks of a strike.
