  •  Any chance the workers could buy the company? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I know it's a long shot in these days when management has the (car) elevators and workers just get the shaft, but if there were a way for the workers to buy the company and turn it into a workers' cooperative, they wouldn't have to worry about management tripling their salaries, because they'd get to vote on such things.

    It would just be nice to be able to point to a successful company with a well-known brand and be able to tell wingnuts, "So you don't like socialism? Fine. No more socialist Twinkies for you."

    The thought that life could be better is woven indelibly into our hearts and our brains. – Paul Simon, "Train In The Distance."
