Here in Portland, did you know that Jet Video is now Jet Video Cooperative? In January 2013, Jet became a worker-owned and collectively managed business, joining the ranks of other worker cooperatives in Maine such as Local Sprouts and Fedco Seeds.
This means that the ownership and management of our store are shared among staff members who make a long-term commitment to working here. Imagine what it would mean if such a model of workplace democracy became standard throughout the country! You can learn more at USWorker.coop.
