Unions in Nordic countries seem to be very focused on helping when things go wrong - during unemployment, when accidents happen, when there's unlawful treatment of workers.
This is absolutely vital, but I wonder whether focus should also be put to maximise potential, not just minimise risks.
Adult education, helping set up a coops or a voluntary move from wage-earner to self-employment, etc. all seem like worthy of more attention.
The 12th and final chapter of #SolidarityEconomy Roads is here! Get a cup of coffee and give it a read:

it's extremely cool that i've gone back to just ordering from places over the phone in 2019 instead of placing easy and convenient online orders, because it turns out every online hub to deliver from (grubhub, ubereats, whatever) is either fucking over the restaurants OR their drivers
we have the technology but we really shouldn't use it
Anyone have resources on manager evaluations? something my newly formed non-manager caucus at work is trying to get institutionalized and I'd love something with a #democraticmanagement or social justice lens
Does anyone have contacts at #KoBo toolbox? I have a coworker who is interested in using it and they want a demo but they've been unable to get in contact with someone there who can set them up with one!

economic democracy makes me smile
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
