Hear from worker cooperative voices what it takes to create sustainable solutions to a perennial economic crisis that works just for the 1%.

For many, the crisis of the pandemic comes on top of many other crises of debt, rights, exclusion, inequality, low wages, etc. With all the challenges that a democratic process brings, worker cooperatives have been spaces to help revert the exploitation of the ruling class by engaging in practices to build agency, empowerment, and shared responsibility. Yet worker cooperatives struggle like any other business under economic crisis, and the model to create another way for our economy is more vulnerable than ever.

What are worker cooperatives doing today to care for their communities? What are the different struggles in rural and urban settings? What does it mean to Do it all …and again without childcare? What can we do to support essential workers? What does the cooperative ecosystem need to do to support our economies to thrive?
