WGA strike mediator: Has anyone considered Candy Spelling?

Well, ain’t that a stitch. After the jump, a well-reasoned analysis of the strike circumstances from Mrs. Candy Spelling

The whispers about how our business is the only one that pays residuals are increasing. The auto workers who put together our cars do not get bonuses when we hit 100,000 miles. The doctor who performed successful heart surgery doesn’t get a percentage of our salaries when we return to work. I don’t like the logic or the implications, but I’m hearing it more and more and feel the strike may be an excuse to provide less, not more.

The biggest problem, though, is that, no matter how many pie charts, no one knows the size of the pie, how many flavors will be offered, if it’s good or bad for us in the long run and how many will be manufactured.

How can the writers negotiate for percentages when they don’t have an idea about the grosses, revenues, sales, overhead deductions or anything that makes this is a valid math problem?

And, how can the studios claim there isn’t that much revenue to be generated, when we all know there is?

Class, continue to discuss amongst yourselves. — Dana Harris
