There are many steps to getting a worker co-op up and running. MadWorC, especially its Outreach and Development Committees, can help you with most of them. What you need is three things:
- An understanding that a worker co-op is a small business. You need to be strongly committed to the product or service you plan to provide.
- An understanding that worker co-ops are profoundly democratic. Worker-owners do not give or take orders. We vote.
- Four other people who understand these points.
