Bernie Sanders plan to create worker cooperatives

DCblogger's picture

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.

I would like to believe and will vote for BS in the primes in Calli but the model he is running on know will not work. LBJ tried to do the right thing in America with the Great Society but sadly a country can not run a war at the same time.

This time in the New Amerikas history we are waging war, well you name it and this country has OPs teams everywhere. Sad.

I do believe it was at NC it was pointed out we need to move into a new error (not misspelled) of science for humans. Sadly the Universities of Amerika have taken on short term research that the military/contractors need in a very short sighted but heavy on the cash side of so-called science.

I'll be voting Green. it has to start somewhere. The again both so-called parties of the people weren't there in the beginning of Amerika so why should be there in the near future?

The idea of cooperatives has worked for a long time:)

"LBJ tried to do the right thing in America with the Great Society but sadly a country can not run a war at the same time." --- I believe there is a chance Bernie will actually win, and that he means it when he says we need to knock off the "regime change" stuff, at least.
