Two writers from "The Young and The Restless" were given the axe. Exiting the show are breakdown writers Paula Cwikly and Michael Conforti.  Cwikly has been with "Y&R" since 2006 and Conforti recently joined the show in late 2012. For discussion on these topics and more, join us in the Writers/Directors thread at the SON Community.

EXCLUSIVE: Soap Opera Network has learned the names of soap opera writers who declared “Financial Core” status to keep on working during the strike. By going “Fi-Core,” these writers can never be members of the WGA again but they continue to pay reduced union dues and the Guild is obligated to continue providing services such health insurance, pension and residuals. Though they can still work on Guild projects, Guild members will not be keen to hire them.
