1worker1vote is building a national network of hybrid, shared ownership, regional and municipal ecosystems starting with unionized worker-owned cooperative businesses to overcome structural inequalities of opportunity, mobility, and income. Building pathways out of poverty leading to pathways toward prosperity.

1worker1vote.org Principles

We’re often asked why union co-ops are a good fit for the American business ecosystem and why workers and entrepreneurs would be interested in pursuing this type of corporate structure. To help answer that, we’ve been working on a list of 1worker1vote.org principles:

  • We do not ask for any government hand-outs or programs, only for a level playing field.
  • We believe in boot-strapping, entrepreneurship and best business practices in a free and fair marketplace.
  • We value ownership as the original system condition and strive to extend it to as many working Americans as possible (land, home and, now, workplace).
  • We believe that ownership or equity creates a higher civic ethic and allows worker-owners to give back more to their hosting communities.
  • We believe every worker has the potential to be a job creator.
  • We believe that widespread ownership represents freedom with accountability and responsibility and that every American worker deserves this opportunity.
