Workplace Democracy
We live in a representative democracy. We spend more than 50% of our time awake at work. Why not more democracy at work!

A business owned by the employees and/or the community can be an integral part of a strong local economy. Cooperative business principals encourage a company to make decisions based not only upon rates of growth and profit , but also upon the effect on employee owners, customers and the surrounding community of stakeholders.
