#coopfact of the day!
Often the right wing will say that socialism doesn't work because people don't take care of property if its not owned by them but by the state.
#workercoop movement turns this argument against them: with the same logic workers work harder in companies that are owned by workers. Empirical evidence backs this up.
@LeoSammallahti When I was interning at a tech start-up there was a guy who probably worked 50 hour weeks because he always stayed late and took his lunch at his desk. I asked my friend why he spent so much time there and she was like “well we all have stock in the company, so a better product means we get paid more”. I’d never thought about that before then
social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
