Own the Change: Building Economic Democracy One Worker Co-op at a Time

Take a sneak peek at “Own the Change,” a new documentary about worker-owned cooperatives.
"We moved from land ownership to home ownership, and it's time we move to workplace ownership."

While many companies were cutting jobs during the recession, worker owned co-ops were growing and hiring employees. Not only do workers own a part of the business, but they are involved in decisions, and share responsibilities.

This video, a trailer from a collaboration between GRITtv and the Toolbox for Education and Social Action, highlights the difficulties in developing a worker owned co-op, but those difficulties do not outweigh the benefits. A community develops in the workplace where co-op members support one another.
