President Biden Expresses Hope for Resolution of WGA Strike
In a recent event at the White House, President Joe Biden shared his perspective on the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike. He expressed his hope for a quick resolution and mentioned that writers should receive a fair deal.
“I sincerely hope the writers’ strike in Hollywood gets resolved, and the writers are given a fair deal they deserve as soon as possible,” said Biden. He also highlighted the significance of the American film industry and the important role of all its workers, including writers, in narrating the nation’s stories.
Biden’s remarks came after the White House had earlier declined to comment on the ongoing WGA strike. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had previously stated that it was the administration’s policy not to comment on ongoing work stoppages. However, she did confirm that the President is a supporter of workers’ rights to strike.
These comments by President Biden on the WGA strike underscore the ongoing conversation about labor rights and fair compensation within the entertainment industry.
