Writers Strike & Scabs

August 21, 1988

Lawrence Christon's "Strike Reflections: A Pyrrhic Victory for the Odd Men Out" (Aug. 14) likened the Writers Guild of America-Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers strike as "a lovers' quarrel where the argument is ostensibly about one thing, but in reality is about something else."

The something else was in fact the destruction of WGA as an effective bargaining agent for writers and the gutting of all labor unions.

Incidentally, the IWW was the Industrial Workers of the World, not the International Workers of the World.
