Setting Up A Workplace Co-op

As an anarchist, I am always interested in finding alternative (i.e. non-capitalist) ways of organising production and society.  The idea of worker co-operatives has always appealed to me as a step toward both an economy and a decision-making process based on mutual aid rather than exploitation.

I came across this really interesting video that covers a lot of ground about setting up a co-op and thought it worth sharing:

 

It has to be remembered that all of the organization discussed here is setting up within a capitalist economy; establishing it within a mutual aid model would need some tweaks.

However, variations of the basic model works at any scale, as I have discussed previously in regard to the banking industry.
