The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has recently joined the Writers Guild of America (WGA) in striking.
One of the most horrifying reason for the strike is the use of AI and background actors being forced to scan their likeness, receive one day pay and then have their likeness used forever in television and film, thus making them obsolete.
SAG and WGA have shown they will not be messed with, taking on the AMPTP which represents like likes of Warner Brothers, Netflix, Amazon, Disney, Comcast, and Paramount.
This is only the beginning of machines taking over jobs. SAG president Fran Drescher said in a firey speech that this practice will spill over into other industries eliminating one job after another.
Warner Brothers CEO David Zaslav ad Disney CEO Bob Iger have shown that they are particularly out of touch.
One cowardly unnamed studio executive say he wants to squeeze union members until they are homeless rather than David Zaslav, Bob Iger, and Rupert Murdoch taking a pay cut.
