USA, BIDEN: I hope there’s a fair deal for the screenwriters – Last Hour

(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, May 08 – Joe Biden “hopes” that striking Hollywood screenwriters will be offered a “fair” settlement quickly, the US president said at the White House.

“I sincerely hope that the writers’ strike in Hollywood will be resolved and that they will be offered the fair settlement they deserve as soon as possible,” Biden said before the show honoring the Asian community in the United States. The 80-year-old Democratic candidate for a second term has not yet expressed his opinion on this social struggle, and he is the one who never misses an opportunity to support the demands of the unions.

Thousands of American TV writers and filmmakers went on strike on May 2 due to the failure of negotiations with major studios and platforms regarding, in particular, an increase in their wages.

They also demand minimum guarantees to benefit from stable employment and a greater share of the profits generated by the upstream flow. This social movement has an immediate impact on some TV shows and, in the long term, on the series and films released this year. The last similar episode dates back to the writers’ strike that crippled the American audiovisual sector in 2007-2008: 100 days cost the industry two billion dollars.
