Bernie Sanders plan to create worker cooperatives
It is no longer on his campaign website, but through the magic of the wayback machine,. we can publish Bernie Sanders' plan to create worker cooperatives
We need to develop new economic models to increase job creation and productivity. Instead of giving huge tax breaks to corporations which ship our jobs to China and other low-wage countries, we need to provide assistance to workers who want to purchase their own businesses by establishing worker-owned cooperatives. Study after study shows that when workers have an ownership stake in the businesses they work for, productivity goes up, absenteeism goes down and employees are much more satisfied with their jobs.:
This is the answer to runaway shop, the trade deficit, and so many other ills, have the workers own their places of employment. When Bernie gets elected, expect MAJOR push back from the kleptocracy on this one.
