In this episode, Professor Maliha Safri of Drew University sits down to discuss her work centered on worker cooperatives and their relation to the larger solidarity economy. We talk about New York City's and Philadelphia's worker cooperative movements and how they differ from other waves of worker cooperative development in the past. We also talk about worker cooperative development initiatives that are taking place in NYC and how support from the municipal government can best be leveraged.
