Actors and Writers on Strike Are United and Ready For a Long Summer Standoff

From an AP story by Andrew Dalton headlined “Actors and writers on strike are united and determined in the face of a long summer standoff”:

Solidarity and stamina were picket-line themes Monday as striking screenwriters and actors in New York and Los Angeles braced for a long, hot summer standoff with studios.

Picketers emphasized unity between writers, who have been on the lines for more than two months, and performers, who are only on Day 2 of striking — as well as camaraderie between highly paid actors and those with spare screen credits who struggle to scrape by.
