As with most (if not all) unions/guilds, I deplore the way they attempt to hold entire industries hostage, regardless of the innocent people who are affected (in this case, cameramen, costume personnel, etc.). As if giving the steel and car industries away to foreign countries wasn't enough, unions continue to bully around corporate America in the name of paying mostly unskilled labor $20/hour. Although this story is different than the traditional union strike, once again consumers proved that union members are not as valuable or significant as they originally believed.
