Anybody else as skeptical as I am about this?

I mean, call me crazy, but I just don't trust people who are admittedly only in it for the money to actually operate int he best interests of the workers. Seems awfully naive to me. Am I the only one?

I still have some concerns about aligning with business unions, which have been historically transactional and anti-democratic in nature, but I also see some value in supporting this movement and, perhaps, restoring a more radical element to the labor movement.

@BeechMtn Vernon Oakes has had the “Everything Co-op” radio show in DC for years & I believe that they are going to finally put it into RSS distribution.

Had a chat with a co-owner of one of my fav eateries here - and she made time for me during lunch rush - and learned that she was very interested in broader worker ownership. Made my day.

Hello fellow supporters. I'm currently writing a book on coops and digital and I'm looking for interesting examples of what coops can do with the help of digital, whether it is for strengthening governance, sharing knowledge about the coop model, managing members data, ... don't hesitate to get back to me, I want to give examples of best practices in the book so that it can help the coop movement as a whole

@BeechMtn You should try to attend the Up and Coming conference next month. Leila Wolfrum from Durham Co-op Market is on a couple panels, lots of NC people will be there.

We (Agaric worker coop) just voted in favor of joining the Industrial Workers of the World! Very excited for our work in the coop space to more closely align with the labor movement.

So...this is weird. The "back" button on my local timeline is acts exactly like the back button on my browser, i.e. it sends me to the last website in my history. Not what I was expecting... Feature or bug?

Anyone else see the presentation about techno-solutionism for preventing power theft and think “no, the problem is people are too poor to afford electricity”?

Great interview with Brendan Martin of The Working World on Everything Co-ops with Vernon Oakes:

The problem with converting normal businesses to worker co-ops is that the current owners have to go along with the idea....or do they?

Just heard that the CEO of Electric (one of the most progressive electric in the country) is running for governor! If she wins the primary in August, she'd be the first woman to be a major party nominee for governor of a US state, and would definitely be a huge co-op advocate. 🤞
