One way to address such concerns is through the creation of worker-owned enterprises. These forms of meaningful economic democracy help to address power imbalances and fundamental flaws of capitalism, while creating a co-empowering and non-hierarchical work environment. Allyship between worker coops helps to create diffused outcomes that begin to restructure economy, as well as our assumptions and understandings.
Please reach out for support if you are considering opening a worker-owned enterprise! In addition to co-founding the Allium worker cooperative, I also sit on the board of the Alberta Community Coop Association, and have a graduate degree in critical economic sociology.
