Immanuel Ness: Advocating for Worker Cooperatives

The Laura Flanders show streams from www.grittv.org. At GRITtv, we often talk about the potential of worker-owned cooperative models with government funding. What we don’t talk about is that this has happened in recent history; during the 1970s, Labor MP Tony Benn supported three worker occupations happening in the United Kingdom. On today’s show, Immanuel Ness joins us to discuss this important history and how it applies to cooperatives in the present day.
