Biden Backs the WGA’s Striking Demands

Before viewing the Disney+ shows American Born Chinese at the White House, President Joe Biden spoke out in favor of the WGA strike.

Biden spoke to the crowd, which had some cast members, producers, and Disney officials. He said, “Nights like these are a reminder of the power of stories and the importance of treating storytellers with dignity, respect, and the value they deserve.”

“I sincerely hope the writers strike in Hollywood gets resolved, and the writers are given a fair deal that they deserve as soon as possible.”

He also said, “This is an iconic, meaningful American industry, and we need the writers and all the workers and everyone involved to tell the stories of our nation, the stories of all of us.”

As part of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the showing was held at the White House.

In the current situation, other lawmakers have offered to mediate between writers and studios, but Biden’s opinion will be the most important.

Members of the Writers Guild of America have been on strike, among other things, because technological growth has made it necessary. The WGA members who want AI to be controlled are also worried about the use of AI in screenwriting.
