Cooperatives Put People—and Democracy—to Work

SHIFT CHANGE – Putting Democracy to Work – preview from Mark Dworkin on Vimeo

 Shift Change—Putting Democracy to Work, a film by Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin about life outside the corporate framework, is slated for release in July 2012.

Examining cooperatives in both the United States and Spain, it documents the growing number of employee-owned businesses. At a time when many people are out of work, job security is not easily attainable, and big corporations are increasingly unpopular, cooperatives provide a way for people not only to make a living, but to be invested in their work like never before.
