Here’s a short video that explains very clearly one of the big reasons why the WGA is on strike.
I strongly support the Guild, but I was angry when I learned that we’d pulled the demand to double our DVD residuals off the table. I am hoping that doesn’t mean that the WGA doesn’t intend to seek a meaningful increase of our current rate (which is about 4 cents per DVD).

Although I don’t remember exactly where I read it, I believe that the DVD residuals issue is back on the table. I think they are saying it was a “one day offer” or something to that affect.
“And the producers confirm to me that, no, their negotiators did not offer anything on “EST”. So, according to guild sources, that’s the real reason the 12:01 AM strike wasn’t averted, and their dropped DVDs demands put back on the table.”
