Please join us for a Meet Up with Niki Okuk on the Worker Cooperatives Business Model

I wanted to let you know about our meetup. Wednesday September 27th at 7 PM
at Father’s Office 3229 Helms Ave Culver City CA 90034

https://www.meetup.com/preview/LAWORCS/events/242963140

We will be discussing a new business model: worker cooperatives.
Our guest speaker is Niki Okuk:

Here is the link to her TED Talk now on the national site Ted.com

https://www.ted.com/talks/niki_okuk_when_workers_own_companies_the_economy_is_more_resilient

Another economic reality is possible — one that values community, sustainability and resiliency instead of profit by any means necessary. Niki Okuk shares her case for cooperative economics and a vision for how working-class people can organize and own the businesses they work for, making decisions for themselves and enjoying the fruits of their labor.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxCrenshaw, an independent event. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page.
