Former Screen Actors Guild president Melissa Gilbert calls a possible strike “foolhardy” and warns that with the economy in a recession, “Now is not the time for a strike,” in an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times. “SAG is in no financial position to bear the burden of a work stoppage at this time,” she writes, saying she estimates the current negotiations likely have cost SAG $1 million, when the union has only $48 million in reserves and needs the money for operating costs.
