“You essentially entered into a contract with the corporate clsss—if you work hard, you will be rewarded. Now it’s you work hard, the company prospers, and you lose your job,” says Michael Moore. It’s time to return to a place where working people are treated with respect and honor in this country, Michael argues, from the Academy Awards to the schools our children attend.
In part two of our special interview with the Oscar-winning filmmaker, Laura chats with him about the solutions to the vast wealth inequality, the good and bad at this year’s Oscar ceremony, and why it’s important for the Left to remember their sense of humor.

Briefly, we wanted to update you on where Truthout stands this month.
To be brutally honest, Truthout is behind on our fundraising goals for the year. There are a lot of reasons why. We’re dealing with broad trends in our industry, trends that have led publications like Vice, BuzzFeed, and National Geographic to make painful cuts. Everyone is feeling the squeeze of inflation. And despite its lasting importance, news readership is declining.
To ensure we stay out of the red by the end of the year, we have a long way to go. Our future is threatened.
We’ve stayed online over two decades thanks to the support of our readers. Because you believe in the power of our work, share our transformative stories, and give to keep us going strong, we know we can make it through this tough moment.
We’ve launched a campaign to raise $44,000 in the next 7 days. Please consider making a donation today.
