Film and TV writers: Here’s how to prepare financially for a strike

Film and TV industry workers are watching the clock tick, as a potential writers strike could begin as early as Monday. Planning now can help stave off the negative financial effects of a walkout.

The Writers Guild of America, which represents writers across film, television, radio and other media, said earlier this week that its members had authorized a walkout. The union is currently in contract negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents networks and studios, over issues including pay raises and health benefits. The current three-year contract is set to expire May 1.

A strike could mean millions in lost income.
