As Hollywood writers continue to demand better working conditions, they have taken to the streets of Los Angeles for over a week. While the picketing for the Writer’s Guild of America has been an uphill battle with no end in sight, some single members are hoping for a different kind of relationship.
To address their desire for companionship, single WGA members have been wearing pink or purple bracelets, signaling their availability for potential suitors. This inspired organizers to hold a singles’ mixer event, where singles looking for a fair wage can also mingle and find romance while picketing.
The idea for the event came from a married couple who met during the last WGA strike, providing inspiration for single picketers to find love amidst the chaos. The organizers hope to connect single members who are looking for someone to strike with while fighting for better working conditions.
The event even garnered attention from Brett Goldstein, writer and star of the hit show Ted Lasso, who showed support for the picketers by attending the mixer. The event provided a unique opportunity for writers to find love and support while fighting for their rights.
As the WGA strike continues, it’s encouraging to see members come together to support one another in their fight for better working conditions. While the future of the strike remains uncertain, the event shows that there is always a silver lining amidst the chaos.
