While I always find it somewhat amazing how Hollywood treats screenwriters, I can’t believe they have had the nads to decrease pay for writers.
Memo to Hollywoood:
You wouldn’t have any movies without the screenwriters! ya jackasses
According to an article on Variety.com today, the WGA annual report states that compensation for feature writing went down 3.2% last year. While that is tragic and infuriating, the worst part of the story was this one little line…
The number of writers employed on features rose by 37 to 1,935 — a 1.7% gain.
So, what you’re telling me here is that less than 2000 people are getting paid to write movies.
