Re last boost:
"As one worker put it, “We’re basically Whole Foods but with more bourgeois prices.”"
> Grocery coops are consumer coops, not worker coops.
The article is on point, but words have lots of meanings. ^_^
@nev @Greg There are exceptions, but I think it's fair to say that large consumer co-ops pretty regularly end up treating workers in a way that is all but indistinguishable from their capitalist counterparts. REI is one example that springs to mind. They went out of their way to stop a union push in Seattle while paying their CEO over $3 million/year.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
