Writers' Strike Ends

The Writers Guild of America West and East voted Tuesday to end their 100-day strike.

According to the New York Times, of the 2,775 writers who voted, 92.5 percent cast ballots in favor of ending the strike.

The previous Sunday the Writers Guilds’ governing boards approved a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

According to the producers’ alliance, the strike cost writers $285 million in lost wages. In other film unions, workers lost around $500 million in wages.

The strike also disrupted television viewing of millions Americans. The New York Times said Wednesday would be a busy day as television writers work to get popular television series back up to speed.
