Throughout the recession, one business model has proven to be resilient. Cooperative businesses are focused on long-term stability, not just for their worker-owners, but also for the communities they reside in.
The documentary film Shift Change: Putting Democracy to Work is based on “true stories of dignified jobs in democratic workplaces.” It showcases the co-op difference, encourages support for employee-owned businesses, and gives an inside look at cooperatives around the world.
Shift Change premieres in Seattle at 7:00pm on Thursday, December 6 at Pacific Place Cinema (600 Pine St). After the film, there will be a Q&A session with local co-op supporters and the filmmakers themselves. Tickets can be purchased here.
Taking your friends to see Shift Change is a great opportunity to help the cooperative movement grow. The more our community understands and supports co-ops, the more co-ops (including SMCU) can give back to the community.
