How to get back to work after the strike STRIKE BACK! Air Date: February 22, 2024 So, every task we take on has its own set of challenges. We know this.

Right now, we are paralyzed with what to do now that the SAG-AFTRA strike is over. It prevents us from even thinking about the “what ifs”. Well, to that I can only say, “Lets Strike back!” Let’s find ways to keep ourselves ready so when external opportunities present themselves (and they will) we will be ready.
