But of those writers that are scabs, how many of them would be truly devoted to the art of soap opera?

You've got people in and fresh out-of-college who write soaps as either a)parody or b)experimental films. Which, a good soap opera is neither and those two things are contibuting factors to the overall decline in ratings for daytime soaps.

And let's say, hypothetically, that daytime soaps do hire scab writers who have watched the soaps for years and years and actually care about the genre. Would the network executives and the executive producers really allow them to be free to write?! In an age where writers have no freedom anyway, who's to say that the shows wouldn't be far worse than they are already?
