Podcast: The case for worker cooperatives and economic democracy
The latest episode of the Upstream podcast takes a deep dive into the worker cooperatives movement: a broad selection of organizations, activists, and cooperatively-structured workplaces that advocate for and embody workplace and economic democracy. The 21st century has seen an explosion in interest around worker cooperatives. In the first part of this two-part series, we look into how worker co-ops present a radically different kind of ownership and management structure, one that has the power to transform not only the workplace, but perhaps the economy as a whole.
