Artists for Workers' Choice

Here's an AFL-CIO video in which members of various actors' unions speak out in favor of the Employee Free Choice Act. Unless the majority party--the party that got in to power on the basis of workers' votes and union money and that pretends to represent workers, the party that currently shows every sign of preparing for a cowardly, craven cave-in on EFCA--unless the Democrats use their majority vote to finally, finally pass this law to defend workers' rights to organize into unions, there is going to be a lot of righteous anger in the working class.

I find the video notable for how many times the word "worker" is used. You don't hear that word very often in this country. (Sadly, though, the apostrophe is missing from the word workers'. Sigh.)
