Michael Moore, champion of the working class, used non-union stagehands to film "Capitalism: A Love Story." The porcine provocateur is promoting his anti-Wall Street jeremiad by giving free tickets to unions, but the American Federation of Teachers has turned them down because Moore didn't hire any members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. "Michael Moore and one of our sister unions, IATSE, are in discussions about concerns the union has," the AFT told ABC News. "The AFT has decided against accepting tickets until those issues are resolved." Moore's agent, Ari Emanuel, seems to blame the IATSE for treating documentarians as "second-class filmmakers." "This is a Writers Guild, Screen Actors Guild and Directors Guild film, as all Michael's films are," Emanuel said. "He is a proud, dues-paying member of all three of these unions."
This guy’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. Here it is Michael Moore is trying to tell Americans in his new propaganda piece Capitalism: A Love Story, that capticalism is evil all the while playing the role of a true capitalist pig and getting rich.
If Michael Moore wants any credibility when it comes to capitalism being harmful, he should EAT the production costs and release the film on the Internet for free. Lord knows he can afford to. However, something tells me that eating production costs of this “documentary” is one meal Michael Moore would not have an appetite for.
