Joss Whedon answers the New York Times, who try to characterize striking writers as latte-sipping dandies.
[ The easiest tactic is for people to paint writers as namby pamby arty scarfy posers, because itâ€™s what most people think even when weâ€™re not striking. Writing is largely not considered work. Art in general is not considered work. Work is a thing you physically labor at, or at the very least, hate. Art is fun. (And Hollywood writers are overpaid, scarf-wearing dainties.) Itâ€™s an easy argument to make. And a hard one to dispute. ]
There is much more, and it is all wise.
