I was lucky enough to join the Writers Guild East after working on a TV show at Sharp Entertainment last year. My mother’s talent for union organizing (teachers) must have been passed down to me, because its really gotten my blood going to be involved and watch this movement develop.

Someday, non-fiction producers will get the credit we deserve as the folks who write reality shows and the long term sustainability that residuals, health insurance and retirement savings would allow.

This latest article in Deadline, focuses on the current push to organize at Jane Street productions and really gets at the heart of what we’re working on now – creating a pay scale floor that the companies can’t go below.
