Why Striking Hollywood Writers Fear an AI Future

The WGA argues that in an already tumultuous atmosphere with layoffs across media companies, writers’ compensation in the entertainment industry has been negatively impacted by streaming, their Minimum Basic Agreement (MBA) protections are being ignored, and that studios and streamers created a “gig economy inside a union workforce,” with writers relying on work from project to project.
