Michael Moore on ABC’s Permalancers

Moore_9.23.jpgMichael Moore was on “Good Morning America” today plugging his new movie “Capitalism: A Love Story” when he used ABC as an example of “what’s wrong here.”

“People backstage here, they don’t get to be real employees here because they don’t get the benefits, so they’re freelancers,” said Moore. “And I said ‘I was here two years ago and you were a freelancer’ a guy backstage here at ABC. He says, ‘we call ourselves permalancers now.’ And that’s just because they don’t get to share in the basic benefits an employee had, who used to work here.”

Chris Cuomo thanked Moore, saying “You demonstrate the question very well in the movie, in lots of different ways. People will get where you’re coming from, that’s for sure.” And the segment came to an end. Video after the jump.
