To the editor: Thanks for the prejudicial headline and the article with a disapproving tone about people having good health insurance. God forbid the members of the Writers Guild of America have clinics at their disposal. Shame on them! ("A gold-plated healthcare plan lies at the center of a dispute between writers and major studios," April 28)
What you do not mention is what the writers contribute to the L.A. economy, the studio-network conglomerates' record profits or the chief executives who make as much as $55 million each year.
The WGA health fund loses $15 million a year. Maybe the studio executives, who depend on the creativity of WGA writers, could chip in to cover that overage with no effect on their lifestyle at all.
"Gold-plated health plan"? Make it as bad as the one for journalists in Los Angeles, if they have one at all.
