LOCAL BUSINESS IS OUR LIFEBLOOD
We’re a workers’
this is a model we chose because we believe in the importance of
non-exploitation, empowering people and building strong communities.
In a workers’ co-operative, employees have the option of becoming joint owners of the business, with democratic control afforded by one vote each in decision-making forums.
Importantly, workers decide whether and when profits go back to the business, to the employees, or to support the community. In this way, the local community benefits as profits are not syphoned off to faraway places, and this can never change even as the business grows.
