SHIFT CHANGE: PUTTING DEMOCRACY TO WORK tells the little known stories of employee-owned businesses that compete successfully in today's economy while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces.
"Any new economy that is more just, democratic and green must open the door to more democratic forms of ownership. Shift Change nimbly moves from the successful cooperatives of Mondragon, Spain to efforts to build cooperatives across the United States."
John Cavanagh, Director of the Institute for Policy Studies and co-chair of the New Economy Working Group
"The North American worker cooperatives and the Mondragón cooperatives in Shift Change tell a compelling story of real possibilities at a time when many think there are no solutions to this current difficult economic situation."
Paul Hazen, President and CEO of the National Cooperative Business Association
"Gorgeous! Simply beautiful! I love what I see so far. The U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives strongly supports this project."
Melissa Hoover, Executive Director, U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives
