Please enjoy this preview of Shift Change - Putting Democracy to Work.

At a time when many are disillusioned with big banks and big business, and growing inequity in our country, employee ownership offers a real solution for workers and communities. Shift Change: Putting Democracy to Work is a new documentary (to be released in July, 2012) that highlights worker-owned enterprises in North America and in Mondragon, Spain. The film couldn’t be more timely, as 2012 has been declared by the U.N. as the “International Year of the Cooperative.” - Mark Dworkin

Worker coops are democratically-run businesses where the workers are also the owners of the means of production. Decisions are made collectively, and the risk as well as the revenue is also spread between all worker-owners.

No, I don't represent them but I participated in a recent fundraiser for a non-profit that's trying to establish itself to provide assistance for people who want to start worker coops here in Chicago, providing funding, legal and logistical advise.  They already have a board of directors, so there's some hope that worker coops will start becoming more visible and commonplace in the future and there's a lot of excitement.  But a lot to be learned.  This is their webpage:

There is also a US Federation of Worker Cooperatives, this is their page:
