The Odyssey Bookshop presents Prospects for a Workers Co-operative Economy with State Rep. Paul Mark and Emily Kawano & Fred Rose, Wellspring Cooperative Corporation THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 7:00PM

Worker-owned co-operatives have been part of the U.S. economy since the founding, but they’ve been easily eclipsed by an economy driven by corporate behemoths. Today they could be the alternative to corporate power and are attracting much interest again among community and labor organizers and more generally. In Springfield, Wellspring Cooperative Corporation is creating a network of worker-owned companies that will provide on-the-job training, employment, and wealth creation opportunities for low income and unemployed residents.
