What do Austin, Oakland, Berkeley, and Rochester have in common?

These cities, in addition to Baltimore and New York City, all encouraage worker co-ops.

I learned about it in an article, a link to which is here:

Do any of you have a more-recent update on the progress of this stable basis for the practice of democracy?

When workers, whether in an office, a shop, or a plant floor, can have a say in their own fate it is a moral issue.

A definition of the concept is found here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worker_cooperative

There you will also find the history and the world-wide applications of this Ethical structure.
