"A DVD retails for $10 or more. Out of that, we writers currently get 4 or 5 cents. We're asking to get 8 cents per DVD. The producers and others say we're asking for too much." That is television writer Saul Bloom's argument as to why the Writers Guild of America is going on strike tomorrow.

The strike by TV and movie writers will greatly affect TV and movie production. The last such strike, in 1988, cost the industry half a billion dollars. That strike lasted five months. Such a strike affects everyone in the business, from TV and movie industry executives all the way down to the people selling popcorn at local movie theaters.

All movies currently in production that require the skills of active writers will halt production. TV networks will substitute new game shows and "reality" shows that don't require professional writers. In addition, of course, there will be plenty of reruns. TV viewers in search of fresh programs might have to switch to cable TV or rent DVDs. A recent nationwide poll indicates that the general public strongly supports the writers, who are thought to be underpaid and unappreciated.

"Writers are too demanding," complained Reese Majors, vice president of CEC Entertainment, a production company with seven shows airing weekly on network TV. "They think they are so special. All they do is type a bunch of words onto a piece of paper. My six-year-old can do that. They claim that writing is work. But how can it be work when it is done in the comfort of their homes? How can you call sitting at home 'work'? The actors and the crew have to go on location, where they must battle the cold, the heat, the jet lag, and the loneliness of being away from home. No home cooking for them—they have to eat catered meals. But you don't hear them whining for four more cents per DVD!"

Biên kịch đình công

"Một DVD bán lẻ giá $10 hay hơn. Từ đó, chúng tôi hiện nhận 4 hay 5 cent. Chúng tôi đang đòi 8 cent một DVD. Các nhà sản xuất và những người khác nói chúng ta đòi hỏi quá nhiều." Đó là nhà biên kịch truyền hình Saul Bloom tranh luận tại sao Hiệp hội những nhà biên kịch của Mỹ sẽ đình công vào ngày mai.

Cuộc đình công của những nhà biên kịch TV và phim sẽ ảnh hưởng đến việc sản xuất phim truyền hình và phim ảnh. Cuộc đình công như vậy, năm 1988, gây thiệt hại cho ngành này nửa tỷ đô la. Cuộc đình công kéo dài năm tháng. Cuộc đình công như vậy ảnh hưởng đến tất cả mọi người trong ngành, từ các nhà điều hành TV và phim ảnh cho đến người bán bắp rang ở các rạp chiếu phim.

Tất cả những phim hiện đang sản xuất đòi hỏi kỹ năng của các nhà biên kịch hoạt động sẽ ngưng sản xuất. Mạng lưới TV sẽ thay thế bằng những trò chơi truyền hình mới và những phim "thực tế" không cần những nhà biên kịch chuyên nghiệp. Thêm nữa, dĩ nhiên sẽ có nhiều phim chiếu lại. Những người xem TV tìm kiếm những chương trình mới phải chuyển qua TV cáp hay thuê DVD. Cuộc bỏ phiếu gần đây cho thấy cộng đồng chung ủng hộ những nhà biên kịch, những người nghĩ rằng họ bị trả công thấp hay không được tôn trọng.

"Những nhà biên kịch quá đòi hỏi," thị trưởng Reese, phó chủ tịch giải trí CEC, nhà sản xuất có bảy show chiếu hàng tuần trên hệ thống TV than phiền. "Họ nghĩ họ quá đặc biệt. Tất cả điều họ làm là đánh một rừng chữ trên một tờ giấy. Con trai sáu tuổi của tôi cũng có thể làm được. Họ nói rằng viết là làm việc. Nhưng làm sao đó là làm việc khi làm ở nhà thoải mái. Sao bạn có thể gọi ngồi nhà là "làm việc"? Các diễn viên và cả đội phải ra tận nơi, nơi họ phải chiến đấu chống lại cái lạnh, cái nóng, thiếu hụt, và cô độc vì xa nhà. Không có cơm nhà cho họ-họ phải ăn cơm giao hàng. Nhưng bạn không nghe họ than phiền về hơn 4 cent cho một DVD!".

"Một DVD bán lẻ được 10 đô-la hoặc hơn nữa. Hiện nay, trong số đó, giới nhà văn chúng tôi nhận được 4 hoặc 5 xu. Chúng tôi yêu cầu được hưởng 8 xu cho mỗi DVD. Các nhà sản xuất và những người khác cho rằng chúng tôi đòi hỏi quá nhiều." Đó là lý lẽ của Saul Bloom, một nhà văn truyền hình về việc vì sao Hiệp Hội Nhà văn Hoa Kỳ sẽ đình công vào ngày mai.

Cuộc đình công của các nhà văn TV và điện ảnh tác động rất lớn đến việc sản xuất phim ảnh và chương trình TV. Vào năm 1988, một cuộc đình công giống như thế này, đã làm ngành công nghiệp(giải trí)mất đi nữa tỷ đô-la. Cuộc đình công kéo dài năm tháng. Một cuộc đình công như vậy ảnh hướng đến tất cả mọi người trong ngành, từ giám đốc điều hành sản xuất các chương trình TV và điện ảnh xuống đến những người bán bắp rang ở các rạp chiếu phim trong khu vực.

Tất cả các bộ phim hiện đang sản xuất cần đến tài nghệ thiết thực của nhà văn sẽ tạm dừng sản xuất. Hệ thống truyền hình sẽ thay thế các chương trình trò chơi mới và những chương trình truyền hình "thực tế" không phụ thuộc vào những nhà văn chuyên nghiệp. Ngoài ra, tất nhiên là thế, sẽ có rất nhiều chương trình được phát đi phát lại. Khán giả truyền hình muốn tìm kiếm một chương trình mới tinh có thể phải chuyển sang ti-vi cáp hoặc thuê đĩa DVD. Một cuộc thăm dò ý kiến trong cả nước vừa mới đây cho thấy đa số quần chúng đều ủng hộ giới cầm bút, ai cũng nghĩ rằng họ đã bị trả lương thấp hoặc không được đánh giá cao.

"Mấy người viết lách đã đòi hỏi quá nhiều," Reese Majors, phó chủ tịch của CEC Entertainment, một công ty sản suất bảy chương trình truyền hình đang phát sóng hàng tuần trên hệ thống ti-vi, than phiền. "Họ cứ nghĩ họ quá đặc biệt. Tất cả những gì họ làm chỉ là đánh máy một nùi chữ lên một tờ giấy. Đứa con sáu tuổi của tôi có thể làm được điều đó. Họ tuyên bố viết lách là một công việc. Nhưng làm thế nào nó có thể là công việc khi được thực hiện trong ngôi nhà tiện nghi của họ? Làm thế nào bạn có thể gọi việc ngồi ở nhà là "công việc" được chứ? Các diễn viên và đoàn làm phim phải đi ra hiện trường, là nơi họ phải chống chọi với sự rét buốt, sự nóng bức, sự mệt mỏi sau những chuyến bay dài, và sự cô đơn của việc xa nhà. Không có món ăn nấu nướng ở nhà-họ phải dùng những bữa ăn công nghiệp. Và bạn không nghe họ rền rĩ đòi thêm bốn xu cho mỗi đĩa DVD!"

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
