In the U.S., there are roughly 30,000 co-ops comprising nearly 900,000 members. Of these co-ops, somewhere between 300 and 400 are worker co-operatives&mdash;where workers own their jobs and the business, and have the power to make decisions about where, how, and with whom to do business.</p><p>Today&rsquo;s worker co-op is arguably not just your hippie grocery store.</p> Wed, 25 Apr 2012 03:58:02 +0000 City Visions 9576 at http://kalw.org Co-operatives: Workers in Progress
