'The Office' is Closed: Why Television Writers & Crew Strike

So why are our favorite TV shows, such as "The Office", going on a hiatus/showing re-runs during November sweeps (and possibly thereafter)? Because writers, the production crew, etc. aren't being fairly compensated!!!

Writers make 4 cents off when you buy a DVD. Writers make NO MONEY when you watch that TV show for free on the internet.

This simple video (above) explains the issues that are causing the writers to strike. Kudos to them for standing up to the broadcast companies who are taking advantage of their creative abilities! Without them, the foundation for brilliant shows like The Office would be non-existent.
