Re: Jonathan Handel

Jonathan Handel was interviewed about contract negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and television and movie producers. "The union has worked to release writers from exclusivity agreements but only if they make less than $210,000 a year," said Handel. "The irony here is that the Writers Guild's struggling TV writers are upper income, not middle class".
