"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.
