Why we fight (2)

Variety:

"Another senior agent estimated that current studio residual payouts are around $55 million, and that if the studios upped that 20%, the writers would be overjoyed.

'Even if they doubled that figure, when you share that cost between signatory companies, it would be less than they spend on a G-4 jet or even what they spend to redecorate the offices of top executives,' said the agent. 'Studios are being piggish, and when you look at the spillover effect, and how many businesses from messengers to florists will be decimated, the cost just doesn't justify the pain.'"
That's what makes me think this strike is to break the union.
