TED Talk – Worker Co-ops

When workers own companies

“Another economic reality is possible — one that values community, sustainability and resiliency instead of profit by any means necessary. Niki Okuk shares her case for cooperative economics and a vision for how working-class people can organize and own the businesses they work for, making decisions for themselves and enjoying the fruits of their labor.”

A good bit of my life has been dedicated to the creation of co-ops. Mostly volunteer co-ops but still, co-ops. I fully believe that this is a better way to do things.
