Strikes, what are they? Well, strikes are when workers boycott their work, usually for better working conditions and wages. Some prominent examples of strikes are the Writer’s Guild, all writers in film and TV in America, and the truck strike in Canada. A big reason people go on strike is to get better working conditions in the workplace. The Writer’s Guild has gone on strike two times in the past twenty years. One big reason for these strikes was to change the way writers get paid. The main reason writers in films is that they write the script and get paid for the script. This is a problem because the writers can not make any edits to the script when filming has started. This makes movies overall worse because the directors and writers could see a line differently in their heads. For example, if someone was jumping out of a big red car. The writers could have a different way of seeing the car than the director sees the car. So, the writers went on strikes to get paid more, and so they can be on set while filming. This will overall improve movie quality, it will also make the higher-ups people in the film industry more money. I think people should have the right to go on strike. All people should be paid well and have good working conditions, if they think they don’t have that they should be able to protest. In my opinion, strikes are a form of protest against corrupt higher-ups in businesses and government. People have tried to ask nicely, but that doesn’t work. One of the only ways they can make a change is to go on strike. Strikes in my opinion are a great way to get things changed in a job environment, they force people to make a change if they want their workers to well work. Strikes should not strike fear in people, people should stand with the people that go on strike to get their terms meet.
