But who’s gonna answer the phones?

Showrunners, stars, kids… just about everyone’s gotten their own theme day on the WGA picket lines. So why not the assistants?

Done.

Swimmingwithsharksbum010 Here’s an email just sent to Scribe Vibe about a pro-WGA rally being organized by the folks who normally answer the phones and fetch the Ice Blendeds.

“ASSISTANTS PICKET” – MONDAY, 11/19 @ 12PM-2PM at the Main Gate (Pico & Motor) at THE FOX LOT.  For assistants and other “below-the-line” employees (particularly those who have been laid-off by the media conglomerates) who support the WGA and would like to picket in unity with the writers.  For assistants and “below-the-line” employees, this is a chance for us to show the writers we support them, and to show the media conglomerates that they need to take responsibility for their own decisions and not blame the writers for their lay-offs.  For writers, this is a chance for us to celebrate the assistants and “below-the-line” employees, and to recognize them for the sacrifices they’re being forced to make as we fight for a fair deal.

Since CAA had its assistants serve churros to scribes at last Friday’s Fox rally, we think it’s only fair that tenpercenters Tony Etz, Joe Cohen and Chris Harbert  scoop ice cream at the assistants picket.
