Shift Change: Worker Cooperatives in Mondragon and the U.S.

with documentary producers Melissa Young and Marc Dworkin


Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.


Melissa Young and Marc Dworkin are the producers of a new film, Shift
Change, which examines worker owned and managed businesses in the U.S. and
Mondragon, Spain.


With the long decline in well-paid jobs, and today's economic crisis,
millions of workers in the U.S. and around the world are having a hard time
making ends meet.  Some are finding a solution in a different business model
-  to help re-invent our failing economy, restore long-term community
stability and create a more egalitarian way of life.  Businesses that are
owned and managed by their workers tend to be more profitable, innovative
and committed to the communities where they are based.  


Shift Change explores the more than 50 year old network of cooperative
businesses in Mondragon, Spain, and a half-dozen thriving examples of the
more than 300 worker cooperatives presently operating in the U.S.  The film
shares on-the-ground experience, lessons, and observations from the
worker-owners on the front line of the new economy. 


Shift Change  had its New England premier on October 21.  It is distributed
by Bullfrog Films.


2012 has been declared "The Year of the Coop" by the United Nations.
