Event Details

SHIFT CHANGE is a documentary film by veteran award-winning filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin. It tells the little known stories of employee owned businesses that compete successfully in today’s economy while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces.

With the long decline in US manufacturing and today’s economic crisis, millions have been thrown out of work, and many are losing their homes. The usual economic solutions are not working, so some citizens and public officials are ready to think outside of the box, to reinvent our failing economy in order to restore long term community stability and a more egalitarian way of life.

There is growing interest in firms that are owned and managed by their workers. Such firms tend to be more profitable and innovative, and more committed to the communities where they are based. Yet the public has little knowledge of their success, and the promise they offer for a better life. View the trailer for this documentary below.

After the film, there will be brief presentations by the filmmakers, and a question and answer session with members of WAGES Cooperative (Photographed below) and Association of Arizmendi Cooperatives.

In conjunction with the film we are also having a PIzza + Pastry Pop-up with Arizmendi Bakery + and Cafe San Rafael in the lounge at 6pm.

Tickets: $8 door (No one turned away for lack of funds)
