Listen to an audio book. There are lots of public domain ones here:

We've been functioning as one for sometime, but we just voted and payed the lawyer for Veloz Courier to officially incorporate as a worker co-op :)))

Just created my account at and did some testing.

Watching youtube videos works really well too. So impressed :)

About to formally incorporate as a worker co-op after sitting on the fence for a long time. Will make an announcement and hold a little online celebration once its official :)

It's pissing rain right now as I read the news of thousands of amazon workers contracting covid at work.

We have a saying between couriers on the road,

"When it rains, we get wet"

I don't think anything else could some up what it means to be a frontline worker right now.

The amount of friends, family, and acquaintances speaking disparagingly of capitalism just in the last few months is staggering. They really don't see a for profit way out of this mess and neither do I.
