Join us for the Seattle premiere of the highly-anticipated new documentary film, SHIFT CHANGE, which examines worker owned and managed businesses in the U.S. and Mondragon, Spain.
With the long decline in well paid jobs, and today's economic crisis, millions have been thrown out of work, and many are losing their homes. Some are ready to employ a different business model; to help re-invent our failing economy in order to restore long-term community stability and a more egalitarian way of life. Businesses that are owned and managed by their workers tend to be more profitable, innovative and committed to the communities where they are based.
SHIFT CHANGE visits the more than 50 year old network of cooperative businesses in Mondragon, Spain, and thriving examples of such businesses in the U.S. The film shares on-the-ground experience, lessons, and observations from the worker-owners on the front line of the new economy.
The Seattle premiere of SHIFT CHANGE is presented by One PacificCoast Bank. The event is co-sponsored by: SLICE Cooperative Network, Washington State Labor Council AFL-CIO, SEIU Heathcare 1199NW, HUB Seattle, NW Cooperative Development Center, and YES! Magazine.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Melissa Young, Mark Dworkin, and Tony Harrah, along with local coop supporters.
