Star Lobby for Free Choice

Some 47 celebrities appear in a new video in support of the Employee Free Choice Act, the legislation designed to make it easier for organizing workers.

The bill appears stalled in Congress, despite heavy lobbying among labor groups and hopes that the Democratic majority would provide opportunity for passage.

Among those appearing are James Cromwell, Elliot Gould, Amy Brenneman, Mike Farrell, Connie Stevens and Jerry Stiller. The vid was created by a host of industry labor organizations including AFTRA, SAG, IATSE, the DGA and the WGA. (Via Shenanigans).
