AskProfWolff: Union Co-ops and Worker Co-ops

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "Dear Professor Wolff, I’ve heard you occasionally mention that DaW has a Union Coop store. What is a Union Cooperative compared to a Worker Cooperative? Do Union Co-op’s have unique strengths that are not present in traditional Co-op’s? In a worker owned market economy can Union Co-op’s help prevent the creation of new class disparities? As great as the Mondragon Co-op’s are I have read articles about there being potential tensions between workers and elected management.Thank you for all the work that you and DaW do, Josh"

"Richard Wolff in his new book examines frightening and anti-democratic configurations of corporate power, offering not only a blueprint for how we got here, but a plan for how we will rescue ourselves and create new models of economic and political justice.” - Chris Hedges
