Marina Alburger is putting a face on the writers' strike.
She was later promoted to scriptwriter in May 2007.
"It is starting to become crunch time for me financially," Alburger said. "I have begun searching for alternative means of work."
Alburger didn't have much to say when describing her reaction to former The Young and the Restless co-executive producer Josh Griffith - and former The Bold and the Beautiful writer Maria Arena Bell - going financial core, or "fi-core" in order to write the show during the strike.
Guild members who have chosen to go fi-core still pay dues to the Guild, but are no longer members with voting privileges. They're permitted to work during the strike. Might Alburger go that route?
"I have to do what I have to do and I have to stand for my guild," she sad. "It's tough to know that the show is going on without us but we do know there is going to be a day after the strike and we do plan to return to get the show back on track."
