Big Thanks to Hip-Hop Star Common for Standing with Nissan Workers

Big Thanks to Hip-Hop Star Common for Standing with Nissan Workers

This weekend hip-hop star Common, famous for songs like "I Used to Love H.E.R." and acting roles such as "Terminator Salvation" and "Happy Feet Two," performed as part of a free show in support of workers who are organizing for a voice on the job at the Nissan plant in Canton, Miss. (Check out his awesome T-shirt [above].) The workers are pushing for a vote to organize as part of the UAW.

Actor Danny Glover also appeared at the concert to support the workers and Sean (Diddy) Combs sent a video message (see below).
