A second community film screening of Shift Change, a documentary about worker cooperatives in the U.S. Followed by a a discussion.

This second community screening is at St. Lukes in the Conference room See flier attached.

Shift Change is a documentary film by veteran award-winning filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin. It tells the little known stories of worker-owned businesses that compete successfully in today’s economy while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces.

With the decline in U.S. manufacturing and today’s economy, millions are losing their homes. The usual economic solutions are not working. Worker cooperatives keep profits in the hands of the workers who create them. They also allow people to work in spaces that value their participation and input.
