The WGA isn't greedy, but I really don't see the big deal about the daytime writers. Yeah, in a perfect world there's loyalty and solidarity and whatnot, but let's get real. This strike is going to have no effect on probably 98% (if not more) of soap writers. They can still support their fellow writers and the strike, but I really would not call them traitors for not participating. And frankly, I don't care if that makes me sound like a horrible person.
I disagree with the greedy part but agree with the rest.
I also don't think someone crossing so they can support their family is scummy. When you know someone who lost their home during the grocery clerks strike that they didn't necessarily support, you tend to see things differently. ~~~~
