At a time when many are disillusioned with big business and growing inequality, employee ownership offers real solutions for workers and communities. SHIFT CHANGE visits thriving U.S. cooperative businesses and the Mondragon Cooperatives in the Basque Country of Spain, sharing on-the-ground experiences and observations from the worker-owners on the front lines of the new economy.
