Biden calls for ‘a fair deal’ for striking screenwriters



The president’s comments came after White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said last week that the administration would not comment on the issue.

“You’ve heard us say many times before, we don’t speak to an ongoing strike,” Jean-Pierre said during a White House briefing.

“But more broadly … President Biden is a strong supporter of workers’ rights to strike,” Jean-Pierre added. “Again, we encourage both sides to stay at the table.”

On Monday, Biden spoke of the importance the entertainment industry has had on America.

“This is an iconic, meaningful American industry,” he told the crowd. “And we need the writers and all the workers and everyone involved to tell the stories of our nation and the stories of all of us.”
