Description

Members of seven Toronto area worker co-operatives (Co-operative Work, The Big Carrot, Making It Work, Our Times, Just Work, Handyworkers, Woman's Choice Health Clinic) explain what a worker co-op is, what it does, and how they got started. They discuss quality of worklife issues and describe some problems of trying to put democracy into practice. Also discussed is the question of how women are faring in the worker co-op model, and the role of labour unions in worker co-ops.
