Monday's showing, for AFL-CIO Convention delegates and guests, will be the first U.S. showing of the film which depicts the Wall Street collapse with Moore's trademark humor. DeMoro calls the film "the best major labor film in years" and "an unabashed advocacy of working people and critique of an unjust system and the financial misdeeds that have led to the gravest economic crisis since the Great Depression."
