Congressman Jared Polis is the guest on today’s Co-op Power Hour to talk about the trend toward employee owned businesses. Rep. Polis sponsored the Worker Ownership Readiness and Knowledge Act (WORK Act) in the House. Senator Bernie Sanders sponsored the Senate version of the bill that supports programs designed to promote employee ownership and employee participation in business decision making.

We also hear from Halisi Vinson, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Employee Ownership Center.

The Co-op Power Hour is a monthly production of the Colorado Co-operative Study Circle. It airs on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6pm on It’s the Economy.
