Michael Moore, 'Champion' of Working Class, Slammed for Using Non-Union Workers

0_21_ap_moore

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."
