There is 1 comment on Hollywood Strikes. BU Acting Alums Explain Why Their Fight Matters

  1. Go SAG-AFTRA! Go WGA!

    These latest developments put the reception that David Zaslav got at the BU commencement last May in a somewhat different light. Now that SAG-AFTRA is in the mix, our student protestors would appear to be even more justified, and prescient, in their actions.

    With both actors and writers calling attention to their collective plight, and with increased militancy on their part, it looks like Hollywood is at a crossroads, one at which people in many other parts of our economy are as well.

    Largely the issue would seem to center on how much money the Zaslavs, Bezoses, etc. want for themselves and how much they are willing to share with those employees who generate their outsize (obscene…?) fortunes.
