FOX Cuts Overtime Pay for Assistants, Citing WGA Strike as Reason

The WGA strike impacts more than just those schmucks with laptops. FOX has cut overtime pay for executive assistants, according to this informant:

So this week they cut overtime at Fox for Assistants. I think that’s BULL FUCKING SHIT. They say it’s a cost cutting measure in anticipation of the strike. What I want to see is someone calling these assholes out on their totally stupid, cheap, excuse. Why should the only the assts have to suffer for something that may or may not happen a couple weeks from now? They didn’t curtail Executive Expense accounts here…I know my bosses routinely spend more than my entire salary per week on lunches and drinks etc. not to mention sending flowers or wine to people at $100 a pop. Anyway… Someone should do a special report on this strike business and how it affects us assistants…
