AskProfWolff: More Benefits Of Worker Co-ops

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "In the capitalist model workers are given incentives like bonuses, stock options, etc for above & beyond performance, incentives which don't have a good track record of benefiting workers as they promise. Worker co-ops offer much better equity, but also improve efficiency and product quality. I know you've mentioned some, but what are some other benefits of worker co-ops to workers and society at large?"
