What do striking Hollywood writers and journalists have in common?

Both want to be paid for their work.

In her Everyday Ethics column, PoynterOnline's Kelly McBride writes: "If industry leaders like [Associated Press CEO] Curley can't figure out a way to increase profit margins, the trend of cutting staff and freezing salaries will continue. Eventually salaries for journalists will fall. If journalists aren't paid enough to support a family (and in some places that's already a reality), the quality of the work is bound to suffer. Who Will Pay the Journalists?

This is our reality. We want a fair and equitable contract NOW!
