Many TV shows and movies have been affected by doing this. Gig workers are employees who are hired on a pay-as-you-go basis. This strike has been going on for the past several days, its effect is now visible in India as well. In fact, now writer unions around the world have come together and that includes the Screenwriters Association of India. It has now told its employees to stop working and will not allow any new work they get on American films or series. It is known that there are many such members of SWA, Who also do writing work for foreign films and web series. In such a situation, it is bound to have an impact on the ongoing Hollywood strike in India. The salaries of writers in Hollywood have not been revised for the last three years. Even though their salary has not been increased till now, here in India SWA has not been able to fix standard fee for its members.
