Upcoming Maggie Gyllenhaal Movie Highlights Debate Over Unions and Teachers

Good piece on film "Won't Back Down" that I've covered here a couple of times (and if you haven't already seen the trailer at your local theater I've got it again at bottom).  The movie, starring Maggie G. and Viola Davis and Holly Hunter, is best known for sparking backlash from top teachers' union president Randi Weingarten, who has noted (apparently correctly) that the unions are the chief bad guys in the flick.  Of course, the issue is hotter than ever in wake of Chicago strike.  Opens Sept. 28.

Why has the Screen Actors Guild not cited these wretched actors? They sghould be banned from ever working on a union set for the rest of their careers.
