Freelance Writing Pay: Livable Wage?

Last week I re-posted an LA Times article that came to me via The Irreverent Freelancer.

The 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, more commonly referred to as simply the “Writers’ Strike”, was a strike by the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) and the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW). The WGAE and WGAW labor unions represent film, television, and radio writers working in the United States. More than 12,000 writers joined the strike which started on November 5, 2007 and concluded on February 12, 2008. The strike is chronicled in a book called “Hollywood on Strike!”
