The writers strike has claimed some more victims: staff of The Office. According to this LA Times blog post, 102 people who work on The Office were laid off since the writers and actors are striking. The employees who are now without a paycheck are people such as hair dressers, camera operators, grips, etc.

There are probably at least that many staff on every show, which means a lot of people are going to end up in the unemployment line while the writers continue to form a picket line. It's all just unfortunate, really. Who should these people blame for their unemployment? They could be mad at the WGA for forcing a production shutdown. Or, they could be mad at the studios for not respecting the writers enough to pay them a decent wage (although, I'm guessing the writers make more money than many of the "staff" positions).

By the way, this Thursday's is the final new episode of The Office until the strike ends.
