Tv writers should end Strike

Tv writers are paid too much! setting a mandatory amount to pay actors and writers etc will increase the cost and risk of making a scripted tv series as well as reduce the possible profit a producer can make if he is successful. This is not good for viewers (we get more crappy reality tv) or for writers (they can't get their screen plays produced).The effects of the previous strikes are clearly stated above the film and tv business is not a huge profit making machine, the losses that both new producers and large coorporations make are immense and easy to see.I have never been in favour of strikes forcing your colleagues out of work and mocking them if they dare to cross the picket line if you dont feel you are paid enough threaten and negotiate with your talent not with someone elses.
